This weekend it’s not just the peaks that will rise high! In a brand new offering, we're combining the natural history of the North Cascades with the age-old and cross-cultural art of baking bread.

We’ll begin by learning about the wild yeasts inhabiting the vicinity of the Environmental Learning Center from environmental educator Evan Holmstrom. Then Chef Justin Daniels will draw connections between the timeless art of bread making and some very exciting current developments in the Skagit Valley. Our chef plans on introducing participants to the Bread Lab - a project of Washington State University. The Bread Lab produces finely-bred varieties of wheat in the Skagit Valley. We will also be featuring flours developed by the Bread Lab to suit the unique climate, economy, and tastes of this singular valley.

Sunday will showcase the tutelage of Arielle Hall - a Marblemount-based homesteader and baker. Arielle will help us use these fine grains to produce our own picturesque loaves. Her breads will also be served for our meals.

The weekend promises to be a righteous recipe for learning, doing, and of course, savoring the educational experience!
