It has been a great year, chock-full of field trips, camps, nature walks, and special events! The Scarecrow Festival on Saturday October 7th was such a wonderful way to end my time at Magnuson Nature Programs, and begin my retirement. However, I will still be involved as a volunteer on the Magnuson Childrens Garden Committee, and I hope to see you next year in the garden! Peace and Love, Teacher Emily

Field trip milestone!

In 2010, we began our field trip program, and in the years since, we have provided field trips for thousands of students from schools all over the Puget Sound region. During the first few years, most of the students we reached attended schools that could afford the fee, but we also saw how many Seattle Public School students were missing out due to lack of school or parent funding. As a child, field trips were one of my most memorable learning experiences, and so I became determined to find a way to provide free field trips, and in some cases free bus transportation also, for schools with a significant population of low-income families.

The result has been better than I ever dreamed: during the past 5 years, grants from King Conservation District and Seattle Works have funded free field trips for 77 classes and over 2000 students, teachers, and parent chaperones!
