Welcome to North Cascades Institute
You're invited to join us in the North Cascades for hands-on learning & fun!
For more than 30 years, North Cascades Institute has connected people, nature and community through science, art, literature and hands-on exploration of Cascadia’s natural and cultural history. We offer a wide variety of opportunities for people of all ages, abilities and interests to get outside.
Whether it's a Family Getaway, art or natural history retreat, canoe or hiking adventure, Base Camp, youth program or a Skagit Tour, we're here to help you connect with your Wild Nearby in a lasting and meaningful way!
