The North Cascades Basecamp’s Ecology Center is a family run lodge and cabin located in Mazama, Washington. They offer a wide variety of activities and gatherings in support of the Basecamp’s mission, "to inspire and cultivate connections to the natural world through art, education, and field study programs". We are offering many a programs this summer to honor our passions and love for the natural world.
In celebration of spring migrants, join our spring Migratory Bird Festival on May 14-15th, which offers exhibits and tours for birders of all abilities. Come enjoy Thursday Campfire Presentations from 6-8pm throughout the summer months, where local naturalists and biologists will explore (both in the field and in the classroom) topics such as amphibians, owls, edible and medicinal plants, geology, restoration, live raptors, and bats of North Central Washington. The Basecamp is also hosting a Plein-Air watercolor retreat with Maria Coryell-Martin and a Botanical Illustration Workshop with Quinn Fitzpatrick.
