Supporting our friends at Cascade Mountain School

Are you looking for an outdoor education opportunity this summer? Cascade Mountain School is an outdoor science program for middle and high school students based out of the Columbia River Gorge near Hood River, Oregon and Trout Lake, Washington.  The summer science school offers seven- to 14-day courses where the outdoors serve as the classroom for students as they learn about climate change, watershed science, sustainable agriculture and more.  MARS staff and board members regularly lead some of these sessions. Cascade Mountain School is a project of the Mt. Adams Institute, a nonprofit organization committed to strengthening the connection between people and the natural world.  This year they’re also offering summer day camps for ages 6-12 including art, nature, farm, and maker camps.   To learn more about this year’s programs, to register online, or to apply for a scholarship, go to or email
