Though I have retired from my Seattle Parks/Magnuson Nature Programs job, I am still very much involved as a volunteer on the non-profit Magnuson Children's Garden Committee, which I joined in 2003.  We'll be hosting a variety of FREE family-oriented events from spring to fall, and hope you'll attend!  Download the Children's Garden flier for a full list of 2018 events, or visit the Magnuson Children's Garden website!
