Make your way to one of our region's most powerful main attractions, Mt. St. Helens National Volcanic Monument. Stopping to take photos along the way, your naturalist guide will present dramatic evidence to show just how well the ecosystem is recovering and the impressive ongoing reforestation project.

Arriving into the blast-zone, just 5 miles from the crater at the Johnston Ridge Observatory we take in some stunning views of the steaming volcano. Your naturalist guide will share the magic of the geological events surrounding the 1980 eruption through a variety of stories, facts and walks. Experience how volcanoes are monitored and discover how Mount St. Helens has taught us new answers to old mysteries. The Center's state-of-the-art interpretive displays and theater magically portray the sequence of geologic events that transformed the landscape and opened up a new era in the science of monitoring an active volcano and forecasting eruptions. Read amazing eyewitness accounts from eruption survivors.
