Mount St. Helens 30th Anniversary – May 18, 2010

On May 18, 1980, Mt. St Helens erupted, triggering the collapse of the summit and northern side of the mountain. Thirty years later, visitors will see that the mountain and surrounding areas are recovering from the blast’s devastation. A new NOVA special is scheduled to air on May 4, 2010 (check local listings for dates and times) to commemorate the eruption and subsequent recovery of the area. The program will be available for free online viewing on May 5. To visit the NOVA website, please use this link:

The US Forestry Service also plans to commemorate the 30th anniversary of the eruption. At their website, visitors can learn more about the eruption and changes to the region. Visitors can also plan a trip, view webcams, and download education materials. Visit the US Forestry website at the following link:
