North Cascades Institute is a nonprofit cooperating association that supports North Cascades National Park Complex by the operations of six retail stores within and adjacent to the Park. Our mission is to inspire and empower environmental stewardship for all through transformative experiences in nature. We help people experience and enjoy the mountains, rivers, forests, people and wildlife of the Pacific Northwest—so we will all care for and protect this special place.
Last year, more than 5,000 local students visited North Cascades National Park to learn about the natural history of their wild backyard. Your purchases help fund youth education opportunities and create the next generation of public lands stewards. Thank you!
