Volcano Outdoor School

Like many organizations and businesses, we've had to adapt quickly and make tough decisions. After extensive deliberations, the COVID-19 pandemic has forced us to cancel our public 2020 spring and summer programs until September 15.   Volcano Outdoor School programs may be available September 15 through October - please inquire.

You can read more about our response to the COVID-19 pandemic here.

Bring your class or youth group to explore the mountain by day and by night with the Mount St. Helens Institute’s Volcano Outdoor School. Come face-to-face with geologic forces and discover the amazing stories of plant and animal life in the heart of the Mount St. Helens blast zone.




Sign up to get interesting Mount St. Helens updates, lesson ideas, links to volcano news, teacher trainings, and opportunities both on-the-mountain and in-the-classroom.
