MOUNT ST. HELENS Kayaking Eco Excursion Paddle along a peaceful, slow-moving river and enjoy the sweet sounds of birds greeting us. Explore the river as it meanders from the snow-covered peaks in the distance and towards the mighty Columbia River. During your time on the water, travel at a relaxed pace through a tree-lined passageway, while learning about the surrounding natural spaces and the importance that these rivers played in the development of Portland area. Fort Vancouver National Historic Site Explore a full-scale replica of the fort named for Captain George Vancouver. Fort Vancouver, located on the northern bank of the Columbia River, was a major center for fur trading in the 19th century. Supplies and trade goods were brought from Britain to Fort Vancouver every year by ship and over land from Hudson Bay via the York Factory Express. At its pinnacle, the fort watched over 34 outposts, 24 ports, 6 ships, and 600 employees. 24 Mount St. Helens Experience May 18, 1980 is a day etched into the history of the United States as the powerful eruption of Mount St. Helens. This event drastically changed the landscape which is now referred to as the National Volcanic Monument. On your scenic journey to the Mount St. Helens Johnston Ridge Observatory, your guide will provide engaging commentary regarding the eruption, how it affected the landscape and surrounding communities, and how the environment has responded naturally to the disturbance. The Observatory itself sits on a bluff near the crater, offering spectacular views of the pumice plain and blast site. 25
