When & Where
Mount St Helens Institute
The Mount St. Helens Institute is a private, non-profit organization which helps people connect with Mount St. Helens through education, research and stewardship. Founded in 2000, the Mount St. Helens Institute is now offering new programs for the Spring-Fall seasons.
We offer Field Seminars in volcanology, plant succession, biological recovery from eruption impacts, photography, and cultural history. The MSHI offersfor use on school field trips for elementary, middle school and high school level classes and through a grant from the USDA Forest Service, the Institute brought under-served kids to the volcano in the spring of 2008, part of our Volcano Explorers Program.
The Institute also offers a monthly lecture series called Volcano Views and Brews. This low cost event is held at the Lucky Labrador Beer Hall in Portland, OR and features subjects from science to conservation to recreation and includes art, writing and music. VV & B is the third Tuesday of each month.
Snowshoe adventures occur on Sundays throughout the winter. Explore the mountain with us!
