Welcome to Pacific Rim Institute!

The Pacific Rim Institute for Environmental Stewardship is a Christian nonprofit organization located on Whidbey Island in Washington's Puget Sound.  We equip people and communities to live sustainably and care for Creation. We do this by restoring and preserving native ecosystems, researching restoration best practices, educating students of all ages in environmental stewardship, and serving our community through our trails and facilities.

Our work is an every day commitment to our community, the land, and to our God who "through Him all things were made". John 1:3
