So many routes to the Wild Nearby in 2016!

Happy New Year! We are so excited for 2016 as it marks two significant milestones: the centennial of the National Park Service and the 30th anniversary of North Cascades Institute! You’ll be hearing much more about how we intend to celebrate both of these birthdays in the coming months, including a free picnic at the North Cascades Environmental Learning Center on July 17 (a do-over of sorts for the picnic we had to cancel in 2015 because of the wildfires)!

Now is a great time to plan ahead to join us in 2016, whether at the ELC on Diablo Lake for a Family Getaway or class on photography, art or ecology or on a Field Excursion sailing in the San Juan Islands, birding Semiahmoo, hiking Sauk Mountain or canoeing the Skagit River. Check out the calendar below, visit or feel free to call our friendly registrars at (360) 854-2599.

Also note that next month we will open for registration the second half of our program calendar for July-December, including more classes, Base Camp dates and Skagit Tours ~ even more routes to experience your Wild Nearby in 2016....
