Mission Statement

The Institute's mission is to promote stewardship, science and appreciation of volcanic landscapes of Mount St. Helens and the Pacific Northwest.


The Mount St. Helens Institute connects people of all ages to Mount St. Helens and our natural world through educational programing designed to enrich visitors’ appreciation and understanding of the Pacific Northwest’s youngest and most active volcano.

We are proud of the many ways we connect people to the volcano they love, from our outdoor youth education programing hosted at the Mount St. Helens Science & Learning Center at Coldwater, to expert lead field seminars and guided exploration programs, to meaningful volunteer opportunities occurring all over Mount St. Helens and surrounding Gifford Pinchot National Forest.

We consider ourselves to be purveyors of passion; and our passion is Mount St. Helens.
