Your gift will create a lifetime of understanding and caring for the natural world...invest today, for tomorrow
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. 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.
Great job Joseph!
