Our History

In 2005, Magnuson Community Center Coordinator Karla Withrow and nature educator Emily Bishton began the Magnuson Nature Programs by offering 2 weeks of summer nature camp for preschool-age children.  By popular demand, these programs have expanded by leaps and bounds in the years since, growing into a year-round gardening & nature education resource for children, families, and adults!
