Puppet shows are part of each class too!

Bring your child or grandchild to Magnuson Park for these fun, 3-week series of hands-on nature adventures!

Each series has a different theme for its indoor and outdoor nature stations, story, and walk, and all classes include a snack walk in our organic p-patch garden! We’ll learn about plants, animals, birds, worms, frogs, and much more.

Adults also receive a take-home sheet each week, filled with simple nature activities and songs on the class topic. Sign up for one class series, or for all three!
