The Forest Service has made investments to revitalize the Monument’s recreational and educational facilities, opportunities, and programs. Investments have also been made to expand community engagement and involvement, and to strengthen relationships with partners and volunteers.
“I’m proud of what’s been accomplished and am looking forward to working with our many stakeholders and partners as we move forward with the work at Mount St. Helens,” said Forest Supervisor, Janine Clayton.
Congresswoman Jaime Herrera Beutler will attend in order to review the progress that has been made by the Forest Service in carrying out their management duties at the Monument.
“The Forest Service has been entrusted to improve access to this treasured Monument,” said Herrera Beutler. “I look forward to attending this meeting and learning about the progress that’s been made.”
Leaders from surrounding counties, the Mount St. Helens Institute, the Cowlitz Economic Development Council, and other partners have been invited to share what they’ve been working on around Mount St. Helens and in their communities. After the presentations, participants will break into small groups to discuss and provide input into a variety of stakeholder issues and opportunities at the Monument.
