June 18, 2016 – February 5, 2017
Burke Museum,

Few places on earth rival the rugged beauty and biological diversity of Washington state’s North Cascades mountain range. In Wild Nearby, immerse yourself in the sights, sounds, and stories of one of the largest wildlands in the U.S.
Step into a full-scale replica of a fire lookout. Hold wolverine, deer, and coyote skulls. Examine ancient artifacts from the Upper Skagit Tribe. Learn what woodpeckers, wildflowers, and frogs can tell us about how the region is changing, and map your next Northwest outdoor adventure.
