To kick off these new programs, the Community Center is hosting a giant FREE event called 'Celebrate Urban Nature' on April 10th, which includes a concert by Caspar Babypants (aka Chris Ballew), hands-on, interactive nature booths, LIVE Woodland Park Zoo Raptors, a NOAA exibit, recycled art extravaganza, and much much more. Fun for adults and children! The day begins with a guided Family Wetland Walk at 9:00am and the Community Center celebration is from 10:30am-2pm.
Also beginning in April:
- Free monthly guided Wetland Walks, to learn how Magnuson's new wetland project provides stormwater runoff management and habitat for birds, amphibians, and mammals.
- Free spring and fall hands-on classes for adults and families on creating your own bird-friendly garden, and child-friendly gardening features and activities.
- A new field trip program for preschool and primary grades.
