Mount St. Helens Institute eNews

The last month on the mountain has seen rapidly changing conditions, heavy snow, road closures & reopenings, and the occasional visit from our old friend, the sun. The good news is that indoors or outside, we've got programs for all occasions. Vacation planning tips for spring and summer, live virtual field trips, and more news about Views and Brews follow in the February edition of Rumblings.

As always, we remain steadfast in our commitment to bring the volcano to people around the world while improving equity in accessing science, the outdoors and public lands.

Live Virtual Field Trips are Happening Nationwide


Live virtual field trips are underway at Mount St. Helens. These science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) courses take youth on an exciting and educational trip to our favorite volcano. These courses offer many options to suit the specific needs of your class. Busy teachers can run the course as is, but those looking to customize the experience can do so. These courses scale from a classroom environment to small teams, to individuals. How will your students explore Mount St. Helens this year? The choice is yours.
