Company Description

North Cascades Institute inspires and empowers environmental stewardship for all through transformative experiences in nature. Since 1986, we have helped connect people, nature and community through science, art, literature and the hands-on study of the natural and cultural history of the Pacific Northwest. Our goal is to help people of all ages experience and enjoy the mountains, rivers, forests, people and wildlife of the Pacific Northwest – so all will care for and protect this special place.

Our offerings include Mountain School, Youth Leadership Adventures, the Graduate M.Ed. Degree Program, Family Getaways and a year-round schedule of natural and cultural history seminars and field excursions. Learn more at

The North Cascades Environmental Learning Center, field campus of the North Cascades Institute, is a hub of discovery for all ages in one of the wildest, heaviest glaciated and most biologically diverse areas in North America. Built in partnership with Seattle City Light and the National Park Service, the campus graces the north shore of Diablo Lake in the heart of the North Cascades.
