North Cascades Institute

North Cascades Institute’s mission to inspire environmental stewardship through transformative learning experiences in nature.

Since 1986 the Institute has helped connect people, nature and community through science, art, literature and the hands-on study of natural and cultural history. Our goal is to help people of all ages and backgrounds 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 administrative office is co-located with the National Park Service and US Forest Service in Sedro-Woolley, Washington. The North Cascades Environmental Learning Center is located on Diablo Lake in North Cascades National Park. North Cascades Institute is a respected, national leader among U.S. environmental education organizations.
