Following construction of the North Cascades Environmental Learning Center, dozens of volunteer Plant Stewards helped the Institute plant more than 22,000 native shrubs and trees throughout the campus to rehabilitate the long-used site. Now, eleven years later, those plants are doing well thanks to continued attention from volunteers.

For this specially-priced weekend, join the National Park Service and Institute naturalists in tending to our native flora and habitat surrounding the Learning Center. A variety of essential projects will be waiting for us, including thinning, mulching and invasive plant removal. Your hard work will be rewarded when our kitchen crew serves up delicious meals prepared with local, organic ingredients. We’ll wrap up the day with local storytellers who will share evening presentations and campfire discussions before you retire to our comfortable guest lodges with the satisfaction of a job well done.
