To do this we engage students of all ages in hands-on environmental learning, with the highest quality facilities, programs, and staff. Each experience we create aims to inspire our students to understand, appreciate and protect the natural world. Through education, we help build sustainable communities and environments for generations to come. Wenatchee River Institute is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit.

Joseph Winters, a former Wenatchee River Institute student (2008) and intern (2017), has been working with Oregon Public Broadcasting (OPB) this summer. OPB has just published one of his works about the benefits that clear cut logging may have for native bee species.

A WRI experience is one that could last a lifetime. Whether it's a group of 5th graders turning over rocks in the river looking for macro-invertebrates, or a group of adults learning a new skill, all of them are creating connections with the natural world. Check out our calendar to see what your next WRI experience could be!
Take a look.
