Welcome to Magnuson Nature Programs! 2015 is our 11th Anniversary year, and we will be celebrating with oodles of exploration adventures for children, adults, and families, all held at beautiful Magnuson Park!

NEW adventures for 2015 include a series of after-school cooking classes for ages 6-12, entitled Fresh-from-the-Garden Cooking Club, and an expanded schedule of Jr. Nature Explorer summer camps! We are also expanding our Custom Nature Walk Program to include offering Custom Nature Classes for scout troops, preschools, and other small groups. Check our new web pages for all the details!

News and Notes

Here's a program we really like, called “Recycle Caps with Aveda”!
You can bring your caps in small amounts (1 shopping bag or 1 paper box) to any participating Aveda Experience Center store. Caps included in this collection are any plastic “twist on” caps. Some examples are; water bottles, soda bottles, laundry detergent bottles, ketchup bottles, and shampoo/ conditioner bottles. Caps that are NOT included are any metal caps and any “snap fit” plastic caps. Some examples of snap fit caps are; margarine and cottage cheese caps.

There is an Aveda Experience Center store in the north end of University Village Shopping Center, next to the Microsoft store. It's address is:
2622 NE University Village Street
Space 727
Seattle, WA 98105

We just dropped off a whole shopping bag full that was leftover from our 2014 nature crafts supplies. Next year I will have a collection can at our Ravenna Room sign-in table if you want to bring some to donate too!
