Mount St. Helens Institute

An inspiring outdoor classroom

Mount St. Helens inspires curiosity. We advance understanding and stewardship of the Earth through science, education, and exploration of volcanic landscapes. Removing barriers to access, we invite all people to share in the experience and awe of the volcano through outdoor school, guided hikes and climbs, events, facility rentals, summer camps, and volunteer opportunities.

In the awe-inspiring Mount St. Helens National Volcanic Monument in a remote location between Portland OR and Seattle WA.
