After 35 years of serving as Executive Director of North Cascades Institute, naturalist, poet and nonprofit leader Saul Weisberg is retiring. Over that time, our conservation organization has grown from an idea that emerged around a campfire between Saul and friends to a nationally-recognized organization that reaches thousands of learners every year. Join us for a fun evening of storytelling and conversation with WeisbergWilliam Dietrich and John Miles.

Bill Dietrich is a retired Seattle Times journalist and the author of 22 books, both nonfiction and fiction.  He also taught environmental journalism at Huxley College and served on the board of the Institute during development of the Environmental Learning Center.

John Miles taught at Huxley College of the Environment at Western Washington University for over 40 years and served as dean. A long-time North Cascades Institute Board member, he worked with Saul on many projects and programs, including the Graduate Program.
