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.

If you’re looking for a way to “give back” to the North Cascades and contribute to the Institute’s conservation mission, the Stewardship Weekend might be just what you’re looking for!

LEARNING CENTER ACCOMMODATIONS: Single, Double, Triple and Quad Accommodations are for families and groups who wish to guarantee lodging with specific individuals during their stay. Triple and Quad Accommodations will require use of an upper bunk, accessible by an easy-to-use ladder. Hostel pricing is the cost for sharing a room with up to three other participants. The number of occupants per room (1-4) will be determined based on the total number of hostel guests each night. We do not guarantee a room with your requested roommate under this option, and you may be lodged in a mixed gender room. Please do not select this if you have participants under 18 in your group.

The Learning Center campus features classrooms, a dining hall, a library, outdoor learning shelters, trails, a canoe dock and an amphitheater. Our three guest lodges have shared gender-specific bathrooms with showers and each room contains two sets of twin bunk beds, desks, wardrobes and wireless internet connectivity. Facilities and local trails are all ADA accessible and a personal mobility vehicle is available. Delicious, healthy meals incorporating local and organic foods are provided in our dining hall. If you have special dietary requirements or food allergies, we will gladly attempt to accommodate them with advance notice. Sorry, but we cannot accommodate pets.
