SYMPOSIUM TOUR

In conjunction with the Symposium, we are offering the opportunity to take an optional tour of Mount Saint Helens on Monday, September 11, 2017. Mt. St. Helens is an active volcano that erupted violently in 1980, causing extreme damage to the surrounding area including, the largest avalanche ever recorded, 600 mph winds, mudflows, pyroclastic flows, and flooding. Thirty-seven years later, the event’s evidence is still quite apparent. Added to that, the incredible biological regeneration of the damaged areas has also been phenomenal and fully documented. No other volcanic site in the world is comparable to Mt. St. Helens.
The tour is an all-day event, beginning at 9:00 am and running through 5:00 pm. You may bring a picnic lunch or wait and purchase it while on the tour. Door-to-door transportation is provided by the tour and the cost is $95.00. If you wish to attend, please select it on the registration form. If you take the tour, the fee will be added to your registration fee.
