Mount St. Helens has cast a cloud over more than just Washington. The tremors, earthquakes and blanketing steam have stirred up enough worry to prompt the closure of Weyerhaeuser’s forest learning centre. "Safety is our highest priority at Weyerhaeuser," confirmed Montye Male, the company’s vice president of corporate communications. "In this situation we would rather err on the side of caution."

Located in the 1980 blast zone of Mount St. Helens, the Charles Bingham Forest Learning Centre’s mission is to educate the public about the role of active forest management in the recovery of the ecosystem following the mountain’s eruption 24 years ago. The centre will remain closed until further notice.
