Mount St. Helens Institute and Washington State Parks collaboratively developed a set of activities for before, during, and after field trips to the Washington State Parks Mount St. Helens Visitor Center.
We encourage you to explore our FREE online resources, to coordinate with WA State Parks staff to lead activities in person and to share this new resource with your community!

The curriculum includes the following:
These resources are FREE for all who visit the Washington State Parks Mount St. Helens Visitor Center

The Landscapes of Change curriculum is a result of a collaborative effort between the Mount St. Helens Institute and Washington State Parks.
