Anniversary Picnic, tons of classes and a special invite for military families

Youth Leadership Adventures
 groups are out in the field right now enjoying this amazing weather! Our staff and graduate students are leading 100 high school students into the North Cascades backcountry to canoe, backpack, camp and complete service projects while receiving hands-on training in outdoor leadership, field science and public speaking. You can follow their progress on our Chattermarks blog and "Youth Leadership in the North Cascades" Facebook page.

As one cohort of Graduate M.Ed. students winds down their residency at the Learning Center and launches into summer leadership tracks, the next one has arrived. Arriving from Mississippi, New York, Puerto Rico and elsewhere, they'll begin their graduate experience with a month-long field course exploring their new classroom with trips to the Methow Valley, Deception Pass, Stehekin and, of course, the Diablo Lake neighborhood. Welcome cohort 15!

Wondering what North Cascades Institute program is right for you this summer? Feel free to call our friendly registrars to learn more about the dozens of routes we're offering to get you and your friends and family exploring, learning about and appreciating our Wild Nearby! They are available 
Monday-Friday 8:30-4:30 at (360) 854-2599 or
