Explore the North Cascades (and beyond) this summer!

Happy Spring and thank you for donating more than $119,000 through GiveBIG and the Give Big for Youth campaign! There’s still time to help us reach our goal of $175,000 so we can provide transformative experiences for young people in the North Cascades this year. Thanks for making YOUR impact on the next generation of conservation leaders by this Friday, May 13.

In our 30th anniversary year, we’re offering more than 250 routes for people of all ages to explore, learn about and connect with the Wild Nearby. All of the classes and field excursions we are offering in 2016 are online and open for registration, along with five Family Getaways, dozens of Base Camps (check out our new Hostel rate and online calendar of available dates) and numerous Skagit Tours, including the new Diablo Lake Afternoon Cruises and Gorge Powerhouse & Newhalem Tours.

“I think when we started the Institute, we didn’t really know what we were doing,” North Cascades Institute co-founder and executive director Saul Weisberg said. “But we really wanted to bring people together who loved this place and wanted to learn more about it and help take care of it. These 30 years have gone by really fast.”
