Sourdough Speaker Series
One-night gatherings at the Learning Center
Storytelling has been an important part of the cultural landscape of the North Cascades for centuries, from when the first native people searched for trading routes to the colorful parade of explorers, miners, loggers, fire lookouts, climbers, rangers and dam workers that followed. Nestled at the foot of Sourdough Mountain, the North Cascades Environmental Learning Center is a perfect venue for intimate gatherings of Northwest artists, writers, naturalists, chefs and historians to share their own stories from our remarkable region.
Each Sourdough Speaker Series engagement begins Saturday around sunset with wine and hors d'œuvres on the deck of our lakeside dining hall before moving inside for an informal gourmet dinner of primarily local and organic foods prepared by our renowned kitchen staff. A presentation by our guest speaker will follow, with ample time for questions and discussion. Following Sunday morning's continental breakfast, we'll offer a naturalist-led activity to get you outdoors exploring our wild and scenic neighborhood.
The cost for each event is $125 per person based on double-occupancy. All proceeds from these engagements benefit summer youth activities in the North Cascades, so eat, drink and be merry for a good cause!
