Opal Creek 2015

Here are some reasons why we support environmental education at Opal Creek…

Or, become a sustaining supporter by giving monthly.


Thank you for having us in your community for the three days we stayed with you. I learned about rivers and impressed my parents by knowing about fluvial geomorphology. I now can identify all four types of trees and tell if a river is healthy.

This year your support helped 1,756 participants have transformative experiences at Opal Creek including:

  • 771 students from schools in lower-income neighborhoods
  • 67 Opal Creek Expeditions backpackers, ages 10-18
  • 7 backpackers receiving scholarships through our partnership with Big Brothers Big Sisters


I enjoyed my time at Opal Creek very much and my trip helped me see that I could make a difference. It unlocked a hidden passion that I have for learning about nature and how it works.
