Mount St. Helens Institute eNews

It seems Mount St. Helens has skipped the fall season. We had an unseasonably warm October, and conditions shifted almost overnight with a fresh blanket of snow and much more on the way.  Not to worry, there are plenty of winter adventures to be had at lower elevations all throughout the Mount St. Helens National Volcanic Monument.

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.


Boots & Bow Ties is Next Week!

November 12th at ilani



Saturday, November 12th, 5:30 - 9 pm, at ilani Resort & Casino.

Start your night off with a tasty cocktail, mocktail or glass of pinot, bid on some incredible silent auction items before the live auction begins, and schmooze with other movers and shakers who support science and our public lands.

Don't forget: Slide on a pair of mud boots with your favorite suit or pull out the gowns and gaiters for a night you'll always remember. Because this is no ordinary gala. This is Boots & Bow Ties! 

 Please follow these links if you are interested in sponsoring Boots & Bow Ties or donating an auction item.

Aug-tober at Lawetlat'la
By Lily Black, Science Educator


It is no secret that many regions, including the Pacific Northwest, have experienced an unusually warm October. The landscape around us is largely impacted by this unusual weather, and gradual shift in climate, and many of these changes can be seen in the environment around Mount St. Helens. As we are all enjoying this extended summer, with extra sunny days included, you may want to consider why these changes are occurring, what the implications are, and if it is really a positive truth in the long term.
