Forest Learning Center at Mount St. Helens
Within months of the 1980 eruption of Mount St. Helens, we began hand-planting
more than 18 million seedlings in the aftermath of one of the most powerful volcanic eruptions in North America. Today, those trees stand over 75-feet tall. They're growing so densely that thinning is needed to ensure the heartiest have the sunlight, nutrients and space needed to grow to maturity.
To celebrate the return of the forests at Mount St. Helens, Weyerhaeuser operates
the Charles W. Bingham Forest Learning Center at Mt. St. Helens. The learning
center is open to the public with convenient operating hours and is recognized as a unique learning experience for visitors of all ages. Admission is free.
