Students share knowledge about Mount St. Helens



Salmon Creek — Students from four Washington high schools recently presented research they gathered during trips to Mount St. Helens last year. Students from Prairie High School, as well as Toutle, Castle Rock and Wahluke high schools, gathered April 17 at Washington State University Vancouver for the Mount St. Helens Eco-Research Conference to present final projects from their collaborations with the Mount St. Helens Institute. The young researchers spent a few days last fall at the Mount St. Helens National Volcanic Monument to work with scientists and collect samples and data using a range of technologies.
