Introducing our new video from the North Cascades

Happy September! Do you feel a hint of fall in the air where you are? While we're still expecting more summer weather in the Cascades, the last week has definitely been a sign of things to come, with lower temperatures, earlier nights, wind rain and even a little bit of thunder and lightning!

Our Youth Leadership Adventures have concluded for the year, bringing 79 students to the North Cascades for leadership training and stewardship projects. Next up: Fall Mountain School begins in a couple weeks!

We're excited to introducing our new video from the North Cascades Environmental Learning Center on Diablo Lake in North Cascades National Park!


Explore your Wild Nearby this Fall by registering for Base Camp, a Skagit Tour, yoga retreat or one of our Learning Center or field classes exploring the natural and cultural history of the Pacific Northwest. 

We're also sponsoring several events in Seattle and Bellingham this fall, including presentations by Chris Morgan, Paul Bannick, Kim Stafford and other naturalists, as well as the Northwest Youth Leadership Summit October 22. Read on for details and enjoy the turning of the seasons!
