North Cascades Institute
North Cascades Institute's mission is to inspire environmental stewardship through transformative learning experiences in nature.
North Cascades Institute envisions healthy Northwest ecosystems where all communities and species thrive. Since 1986, we have helped connect people, nature and community through the hands-on study of the natural and cultural history of the Pacific Northwest.
Our primary focus is the North Cascades ecosystem of the Pacific Northwest. Our goal is to help people of all ages experience and enjoy the mountains, rivers, forests, people and wildlife of the Pacific Northwest – so all will care for and protect this special place.
Ecosystems thrive when communities have opportunities for meaningful experiences outdoors in nature, from a neighborhood garden to a national park. We have a shared responsibility to open the doors to people of all ages, abilities and backgrounds to ensure their outdoor experiences are powerful and rewarding. When people connect with nature, our communities are strengthened, nature is protected, and we all benefit.
North Cascades Institute is committed to innovation and excellence in environmental learning and leadership in the nonprofit community.
