About Us

Our Mission

We connect People, Communities and the Natural World.

The Wenatchee River Institute believes the greatest hope for the future is through connecting people, communities, and the natural world. We engage people of all ages in hands-on environmental learning with the highest quality facilities, programs, and staff. Each experience is created to inspire participants to understand, appreciate, and protect the natural world. Through education we help build sustainable communities and environments for future generations.

Our History

The principles of sustainability are embedded throughout our youth and adult programs and activities which, include the best available science and practices. We engage and collaborate with local scientists, experts, and community volunteers to offer the highest quality educational experiences to thousands of students and adults annually throughout the Wenatchee River Valley.
