It’s obviously difficult for Clark County residents to forget the lives lost and devastation created in just a few minutes.  Many wondered if nature would be able to rebuild the beauty they once enjoyed.  Spirit Lake was a place for camping and boating but is now a place for scientific study.  Giant trees were mowed down, but new trees replaced them.  The perfect cone top is gone, but Mt. St. Helens remains a majestic reminder of the continuing cycle of life.

The museum will be open Sat., May 8 and Sat., May 22 from noon to 4 p.m.  The address is 21416 NE 399th St., Amboy.  Area residents are invited to plan a visit to North Clark County and view the exhibits at the museum, including photos and information on Spirit Lake and the Gifford Pinchot National Forest.
