The community outreach and support is one of the many things I LOVE about my job at the Cascade Mountain School! 😊 We decided to donate this bike to Josue for all his hard work and compassion this summer, and also his continued efforts in his community now. #littlethingsmatter #cascademountainschool #cmsbikedonation ...

Last year's lecture about Rare Carnivores of the High Cascades was incredibly informative! This image was taken on Mt. Rainer of a Wolverine and her kits. Hopefully an indication of the species growing in the region.

If you enjoy learning about wildlife too, then make sure to secure your seat for our first lecture this season, Bloodsucker, Eel, Asum, Ksuyas, Parasite, Lamprey: Many Names, but What Does it Mean to Us?

This weekend we remember. We remember the lives that were lost and how all our lives were changed forever. Most importantly, we remember how we came together as a nation. We helped each other pull through the chaos that followed the attacks despite our differences, hoping for a better future.

Together with Americorps, we encourage all who can to help each other again. This 9/11, this day of service, let's get out into our communities and remind each other of our hope and our ability to come together to support one another.

For service opportunities, please visit the link in our bio.

Economics or environmentalism? Trees or timber? Spotted owls or mill towns? 30 years ago our public forests became a battleground - where do we stand today and can these public lands overcome their divided history?

Join us for a panel discussion on April 13th at 7pm to learn about how the Timber Wars still impact our public forests. This event is live, in-person at the Columbia Center for the Arts in Downtown Hood River, OR. Livestream option available.

#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 ...

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 ...

In this week's Field Notes, Rob Carlson, a Land Steward's intern with Mt. Adams Institute, shares his experience.

"I've been a visitor to public lands all my life, especially in the last few years, and it's important to me that I'm able to support public lands directly through this internship. I hiked more miles in pursuit of work last month than I have recreationally in any single year prior, I believe. I get to enjoy these spaces as I would on my own time while maintaining them for future visitors. It is a way to give back."

To learn more about Rob's adventure and that of our other interns, visit the link in our bio.
