Now in its 13th year, Volcano Views & Brews is a popular monthly Mount St. Helens Institute lecture series on Pacific Northwest natural and cultural history. The winter/spring series will focus exclusively on a range of topics related to Mount St. Helens’ past, present, and future. Fascinating subjects and lively speakers, as well as beer and food for purchase, will make for an enjoyable and horizon-widening evening.

The series will alternate between the Water Resources Education Center (4600 SE Columbia Way, Vancouver, Washington) and the Portland Art Museum.

Mount St. Helens Institute
We are excited to partner with the Mount St. Helens Institute on a series of programs, tours, and in-gallery experiences during the exhibition. Founded in 1996, the Mount St. Helens Institute connects people of all ages to Mount St. Helens and the natural world through educational programming designed to enrich visitors’ appreciation and understanding of the Pacific Northwest’s youngest and most active volcano.

Presented in conjunction with the exhibition Volcano! Mount St. Helens in Art
