Family Getaways

Now registering for 5 weekends in July and August! Come enjoy the great outdoors with your family in the heart of North Cascades National Park and start a new tradition! Situated on the wooded shores of Diablo Lake — 3 hours from Seattle or 2 from Bellingham — the Environmental Learning Center beckons with cozy lodges and reading room, lakeside dining hall and network of trails. Institute naturalists present engaging, hands-on activities and we’ll gather around the campfire in the evening for stories and songs beneath the stars. You'll return home feeling inspired, refreshed and grateful for new family memories! Scholarships are available.
