    2018 Mountain School Report

    (pdf) Mountain School is our 29-year-old residential education program at the Environmental Learning Center in the heart of North Cascades National Park. Over 3 days, students spend 26 hours learning about ecological communities with their classmates, teachers, and parent chaperones. Hands-on, interdisciplinary experiences connect students to the natural and cultural history of our watershed. For most, this is the first time they visit a national park, spend a night away from home, and discover the connections between their lives, communities, and the environment.
