Supporter Spotlights

North Cascades Institute is so grateful for the many supporters who make transformative learning experiences in nature possible – from individuals, businesses who give cash and in-kind, grant funders, service clubs, and much more. 

Big thanks to Brian & Joan Poor

Brian and Joan have been generous Institute supporters and engaged participants since 2010 and started contributing monthly in 2017. 

We love and support NCI for the wonder and the wander of the North Cascades.

For the wonder of mountain lady slippers along a beaver pond, and for tiny wrens with big voices perched somewhere on rocky canyon walls. For the wonder of Lily and her cubs on Sourdough and the glacial turquoise of Diablo.

For the wander among mossy logs and dappled trails with new friends and passionate naturalists at the gorgeous Environmental Learning Center. For the wander with sketchbooks and guidebooks, and the wild joy of discovery of the Skagit flats and the North Cascades.

In short, we support North Cascades Institute because we want to share the wealth of lifelong curiosity and the rich joy of wonder and exploration. We support engaged learning of our watersheds and ecosystems for the youth of our region and applaud their leadership forward.

With gratitude to all, Joan and Brian Poor

You can make a big impact by giving small! Monthly giving is a budget-friendly way—starting at just $5 per month— to provide the Institute with dependable funding to help even more people experience the North Cascades.
