North Cascades Institute leading outdoor education for 30 years

In the mid 1980s, Saul Weisberg, now the executive director of the North Cascades Institute, was a climbing ranger in North Cascades National Park and finishing up a graduate degree in biology.

It was the time of timber wars and fights over spotted owls. There was a lot of tension around public lands.

Weisberg and his friends wanted to find a way to counteract that tension. They wanted to bring people out to really experience the park and learn about it.
