The entire 4th/5th grade goes to Seward Park to experience native plants

What an exciting field trip on only the 2nd and 3rd day of school! What better way to learn about native northwest plants than to walk to nearby Seward Park and go on a scavenger in the forest? The 4th and 5th grade will be learning a lot about native plants, native trees, and invasive plants with new garden coordinator Anthony Warner. To see the cards used for native plant identification on the scavenger hunt go to http://wnps.org/education/resources/plantid_cn.html

    Hey I know this is off topic but I was wondering if you
    knew of any widgets I could add to my blog that automatically tweet my
    newest twitter updates. I’ve been looking for a plug-in like this for quite some time and was hoping maybe you would have some experience with something like this.
    Please let me know if you run into anything. I truly enjoy reading your
    blog and I look forward to your new updates.
