Become an expert on the volcano in your backyard as a Volcano Naturalist at Mount St. Helens. The Volcano Naturalist Program is hosted by the Mount St. Helens Institute with the support of community, university, and government partners including the U.S. Forest Service. Students in this course will explore all aspects of the natural and cultural history of Mount St. Helens.
Each class takes an in-depth look at a different subject, including the mountain’s eruptive history, the ecology of the blast zone, the cultural history of Mount St. Helens, and much more. Classes are led by instructors who are experts in the field. With over 40 hours of classroom instruction, and three hands-on field trips, participants leave the class not only as a certified Volcano Naturalist, but with a greater understanding and appreciation for the powerful geological and ecological forces at play in our community.
The 12-week course will meet at the Woodland Community Center in Woodland, WA on Tuesday evenings between January 28th and May 5th, 2020, plus three additional Saturday field trips. Learn more and register at: www.mshinstitute.org/learn/volcano-naturalist-program.html
Be sure to save the dates. Registration closes on January 21 and participants are not able to join the course once classes start.
