Who's Ready to Help Build a Trail on an Active Volcano?
September is one of the best times of year to visit Mount St. Helens thanks to cooler temperatures and clear visibility. It's also the perfect time to help the staff complete a much needed one-mile trail to the nearby Ape Cave, the famous lava tube just south of the active volcano.
Volunteers from the Washington Trails Association and the Mount St. Helens Institute have finished all but the last few hundred feet, which they hope to finish this month with the help of some intrepid travelers.
There are Volunteer Work Parties planned for Saturday and Sunday, Sept. 14-15th, 8:30 a.m.-3:30 p.m., and Saturday, Sept. 28, 8:30 a.m.-3:30 p.m.
If you're planning a fall trip to Mount St. Helens and want to join in on one of these volunteer days, simply visit wta.org to register.
