Explore the great outdoors in the Pacific Northwest
Field Excursions explore regions throughout Washington State, from Seattle to the Skagit Valley to Mount Baker to the Columbia Plateau, from mountaintops to riverbanks to city streets. These trips explore the diversity of ecosystems and communities in ways both educational and entertaining. Register for a sailing trip, a backpacking trip, a birding outing or a stroll through millions of years of geology and let Institute instructors – each a leader in their respective field – lead you to a deeper appreciation of the Pacific Northwest.
