Welcome to Magnuson Nature Programs! Registration is now open for all of our fall nature classes, camps, and walks, and we also hope to see you at our annual Scarecrow Festival on October 1st! Our summer camp season was a fun-filled extravaganza for all, and we are looking forward to a wonderful fall, with more programs on our schedule than ever. Teacher Alert: registration is now open for our fall 2016 and spring 2017 field trip seasons too!

FREE field trips!

Our new grant from King Conservation District makes 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!

We've just completed spring field trips for 18 different classes, and are looking forward to all the students and teachers we'll meet in the fall. There are 4 different field trip themes that teachers can choose from, and all field trip activities are aligned with Next Generation Science Standards.

News and Notes

In 2015, Seattle P-Patch gardeners donated over 39,000 lbs. of food to local food banks and hot meals programs! Magnuson P-Patch donations were #1 in the city with 4,739 lbs. The Magnuson Children's Garden plot donated 50 of those lbs., besides feeding hundreds of children and adults on "Snack Walks" at our classes, camps, and field trips! Kudos to ALL Magnuson P-Patchers who gave their time and energy to grow so much for other community members.
