Environmental Education and Conservation - North Cascades Bioregion - #15.942

North Cascades National Park Service Complex was established in 1968 'In order to preserve for the benefit, use, and inspiration of present and future generations certain majestic mountain scenery, snowfields, glaciers, alpine meadows and other unique natural features in the North Cascade Mountains' (North Cascades's Act, Oct. 2, 1968, 82 Stat. 926, 16 U.S.C. 90). North Cascades National Park contains three hydroelectric power plants operated by Seattle City Light that predate establishment of the Park. As part of the license agreement from the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, mitigation elements were required. North Cascades Institute operates the residential North Cascades Environmental Learning Center, an 11.6 million dollar facility which is imbedded within NOCA as required by a Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) agreement with Seattle City Light, operator of three hydroelectric dams within NOCA. The Learning Center is one of the required mitigation elements for Seattle City Light's federal FERC license for continued operation of three hydroelectric reservoirs on the Skagit River. The NPS has, or is able to obtain, qualified personnel to conduct interpretive training, participate in related programs with a public purpose of support or stimulation of outdoor recreation, resource preservation, and appreciation, and recognizes the Institute as an educational organization.
