FREE field trips!

Our grant from King Conservation District is making it possible for us to offer FREE 2nd and 3rd grade field trips to all Seattle Public Schools where 35% or more of the students receive free or reduced-fee lunch!

In 2016, we completed field trips for 22 different classes, and by the end of spring 2017 we will have completed free field trips for all 50 classes that this grant provided funding for! We are grateful to King Conservation District for making our field trips accessible for all, regardless of ability to pay.

Click on the Field Trips menu tab above for more information on our field trip program. Teachers can choose from 4 different field trip themes, and all our field trip activities are aligned with Next Generation Science Standards. Registration will open soon for the Fall 2017 field trip schedule!

News and Notes

In 2016, Magnuson P-Patch gardeners donated over 4400 lbs. of fresh organic produce to the Lake City Food Bank and to the Magnuson Park/Solid Ground housing residents! Kudos to ALL Magnuson P-Patchers who gave their time and energy to grow so much for other community members.
