Mount Saint Helens Friends of the Forest Day

July 7 - 8, 2012

Gifford Pinchot • National Forest Foundation

Join the National Forest Foundation, Mount Saint Helens National Monument, the Mount Saint Helens Institute, and Cowlitz Economic Development Council for a weekend long celebration!

Come for the day on Saturday to participate in much needed restoration and maintenance projects as well as interpretive education training for those budding naturalists!

If you'd like - stay overnight on Saturday for music, food, and star gazing and then participate in the recreation events on Sunday including kayaking and guided hikes.

Volunteers may arrive Friday evening to camp out or stay at the newly renovated Coldwater Science and Learning Center. Please bring all your own camping gear/supplies as well as any food you would like.

Food trucks will be available Friday until 6 pm and Saturday until dark.
