Custom educational programs, lodging and meals at our sustainable facility in the heart of North Cascades National Park
North Cascades Institute invites you to reserve space at the Learning Center for gatherings of all kinds. Located on the wooded shores of Diablo Lake in the heart of North Cascades National Park, this unique, green-built venue inspires reflection, understanding and connection to the natural world as well as to each other. Welcoming conferences, events, retreats, workshops, trainings, reunions and other gatherings, our venue offers:
"North Cascades Institute has got to be the overall most wonderful meeting venue I've ever experienced, anywhere. I just kept noticing impressive things, beginning with the surrounding scenery, unique combination of environmental friendly minimalism with the "spare no effort for high quality" of the meeting rooms, library, and lodgings. As just one of many examples I could cite, your wi-fi is better than any hotel I've ever stayed in. And I've saved the food for last — outstanding and healthy, every meal and every item, just off-the-charts special. I cannot imagine a better place to get a bunch of folks together and accomplish something!"
