Learning Center Programs & Field Excursions

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 mushrooms to photography, 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 away from the Learning Center 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.

The first half of our slate of 2017 programs at the North Cascades Environmental Learning Center and in the field is listed below. More will be added in early 2017! Registration is offered online or by phone. For assistance, feel free to call us at (360) 854-2599 or email nci@ncascades.org.
