Visit_ELC_Classes

Join us at the North Cascades Environmental Learning Center for hands-on learning adventures with the Pacific Northwest’s best naturalists, artists, scientists and writers.

In addition to world-class educational opportunities on topics ranging from birds to watercolors to geology to "poets on the peaks,"  classes at the Learning Center offer comfortable accommodations in our guest lodges, delicious meals made from local, organic ingredients in our lakeside dining hall and naturalist-led activities in the Diablo Lake neighborhood.

We also offer Field Excursions that explore the natural and cultural history of Cascadia, including Mount Baker, the Methow Valley, the San Juan Islands, the Skagit Valley, Chelan Ridge, Seattle and beyond.

Our new slate of 2014 programs at the Learning Center and in the field is listed below. Registration is offered online or by phone. For personal assistance, feel free to call us at (360) 854-2599 or email nci@ncascades.org.
