Visit the Institute's new retail sites

When you plan your next trip into the North Cascades, be sure to visit the retail sales areas located in NPS visitors centers in and around North Cascades National Park. Thanks to a new agreement with the Park and Mt. Baker Snoqualmie National Forest, the Institute provides a broad selection of books, maps, trail guides and gifts sure to interest any outdoor enthusiast. You’ll find new North Cascadian t-shirts, water bottles, postcards and publications that we’ve created especially for the region too, tapping in to the wealth of photography and art produced by our local friends like John Scurlock, Becky Fletcher, Brett Baunton and John D’Onofrio.
“We’ve been teaching people about the North Cascades for more than 24 years,” said Saul Weisberg, executive director. “Providing visitors with the tools and information they need to explore our public lands is an exciting next step for us.”

The retail stores are located in the National Park Service Visitor Center at Newhalem, the Wilderness Information Center in Marblemount and the Golden West Visitor Center at Stehekin. The retail store in the National Park Service headquarters (Sedro-Woolley) is operated in partnership with Mt. Baker-Snoqualmie National Forest.
Proceeds from sales in these stores will benefit the Institute’s educational programs that take place within the national park or on public forest lands and North Cascades National Park’s interpretive programs. Come visit us and shop for a good cause!
