Learning Center Classes and Field Excursions

Based on guidelines from Washington State and regional health authorities, North Cascades Institute has cancelled all programs and events and closed the Environmental Learning Center through the end of August. We hope to resume modified operations in September. You can find ongoing updates at ncascades.org/coronavirus.

Trail to Learning Center Lodges with views of Pyramid Peak
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.

Registration is offered online or by phone. For assistance, feel free to contact us.
