She’s off for her school overnight trip! She handled all of her own packing and I am fully confident that means she’ll have at least 95% of the things she really needs. Girlfriend is on top of it! #urchinadventures #montessorikids #overnightfieldtrip #cascademountainschool ...

Third time’s a charm. After two previous attempts, finally summited Mt. Adams this morning. And of course, upon reaching the second highest peak of the Pacific Northwest, waiting for me was a spectacular view of the highest. Fuck you, Mt. Rainier.

This weeks #TBT is from the 2014 Cascade Mountain School, Science of Stewardship program. High school students backpacked through the Mt. Hood National Forest while conducting meaningful ecological research. The Cascade Mountain School offers a variety of summer camps that give participants the chance to learn new skills, make lifelong friends, and become more connected to themselves and the natural world. Registration for the 2017 season is open! Go to: cascademountainschool.org for more information! #mtadamsinstitute #cascademountainschool #summercamps #mthood #science #stewardship ...

#throwbackthursday to Cascade Mountain School's 2016 Nature Art Camp! This year, CMS is offering a similar camp called Recycled Art where students will work with recycled and repurposed material to make beautiful works of art! This camp will inspire artistic spirit while gaining an appreciation for the things we throw away. Students will get the opportunity to feel like real artists in a local Trout Lake art studio as they create their magical masterpieces. Registration is open at cascademountainschool.org! #mtadamsinstitute #cascademountainschool #recycledart #summercamp #registernow #tbt ...

Last week marked the end of our Mountain to Valley summer camp! For two weeks, students conducted meaningful ecological research while farming, backpacking, mountaineering, and camping. We hope that they left connected to themselves, with new skills and friends, and inspiration to become positive leaders and change makers in our world! #mtadamsinstitute #cascademountainschool #mountaintovalley #mtadams #troutlakevalley #highschoolcamp #science #stewardship ...

Last year, our scholarship supporters gave several local kids the chance to get out in nature and discover their inner “wild scientist”.

Our donors make everything we do to connect people with nature possible. We were so moved by the transformations we saw in scholarship kids this summer, we are dedicating every dollar that comes in on 11/28, this #GivingTuesday, to scholarships for local kids to get outdoors at science camps this season! #mtadamsinstitute #cascademountainschool #backpacking #mtadams ...

KCD is sad to be losing the amazing Krystal Hedrick, who has accepted a new position as GIS Mapper with the Weld County Assessor’s Office in Colorado.

She served at KCD over the past year through Mount Adams Institute VetsWork, an AmeriCorps career development program for military veterans who want to work in natural resources management.

As a forest technician, Krystal brought passion to her work on KCD’s North SeaTac Park restoration managing a KCD WCC crew to remove harmful invasive plants and prepare the site for reforestation efforts that will improve the park’s ecosystem making it more resilient and beneficial for local wildlife.
