Forest Learning Center
17000 Spirit Lake Hwy
Toutle, WA 98649

Our Forest Learning Center is located just inside the blast zone on the Spirit Lake Memorial Highway in Washington State. It tells the story of Mount St. Helens
and the remarkable recovery of forests, fish and wildlife following the eruption. The center is a partnership of Weyerhaeuser, Washington State Department of Transportation and the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation.

Built by Weyerhaeuser Company, the Forest Learning Center tells the story of the rebirth of the forest. Walk through the forest, hearing the sounds of the birds and animals on the mountain prior to May 18, 1980. Enter the “eruption chamber” to view a video of what the forest looked like immediately after the eruption. Hear a first-hand report from a local newscaster who barely escaped.

The second half of the center depicts the regeneration of the forests surrounding Mount St. Helens. Breathtaking photographs and life-size models of loggers working in the blast zone bring the experience to life. The Forest Learning Center tells the story from nature’s perspective and gives a hands-on approach to learning in the Kids Room where families can touch lava rocks, learn about the animals of the Pacific Northwest, and discover how trees grow.

Location: 33.5 miles from I-5

Directions:
From Interstate 5 in Western Washington, take Exit 49 and continue east on Highway 504 to Milepost 33. The forest learning center is located at 17000 Spirit Lake Highway, Toutle, WA.
