Seward Park Native Plant field trip

It’s our 3rd year in a row taking field trips to our local environmental treasure- Seward Park. It’s amazing to do this on the 2nd and 3rd days of school w/ the entire 4th/5th grade. We get the chance to get to know each other and to learn about native plants, trees, and invasive species. The native plant scavenger hunt is always a hit as we learn about nature’s toilet paper (thimbleberry), salal leaf drinking cups, the AMAZING western red cedar tree, and plant leaves that smell like cucumber (Indian Plum).
