The Wenatchee River Institute believes the greatest hope for the future is connecting people with the natural world. 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.
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!
