MSHI Sponsorship Opportunities


We need forward-thinking companies like yours to help us reconnect people with the outdoors, create new pathways for exposure to STEM, and ignite imaginations about science and stewardship of our public lands. There is perhaps no more compelling a place to transform people than Mount St. Helens. Since our founding in 1996, we’ve reached over 30,000 people through life-changing volcano adventures, ecology camps, field studies and classroom lectures.


Benefits for all sponsorship levels are far-reaching and include: media exposure, name recognition, onsite event branding, employee and client/prospect engagement opportunities, and even the chance to create your own Bucket List Adventure at our beloved volcano. And, naturally (because we’re all about the outdoors, ya know), the amazing feeling you and your company will experience by supporting a social-good cause in our evergreen neighborhood.
