Mount St Helens Revisited
“Mount St. Helens Revisited” is being held on Wednesday, December 7th, 2011 at 7:30 pm in the Royal Oak Middle School located at 709 N Washington - Between 11 Mile Rd & Catalpa. On May 18, 1980 at 8:32 am, Mt St Helens (state of Washington) exploded. In minutes, over 200 square miles of timber had been leveled and 57 people were dead. In the years following that eruption, Mt St Helens has taught scientists a lot about geology and biology. Come join guest Gordon Lonie, retired Sterling Heights Naturalist, for a look at Mt St Helens then and now. Gordon visited the area in 1992 and again in 2004. This event is free and open to the public. Visit the Nature Society online for additional information.
