Illahee: The Power of Nature: Mount St. Helens 1980 - 2010 Gary Snyder, Ursula K. Le Guin and Jerry Franklin

On 18 May 2010, thirty years to the day after the 1980 eruption, poet-naturalist Gary Snyder, writer Ursula K. Le Guin  and forest ecologist Jerry Franklin will share experiences and writings from Mount St. Helens, where all have deep personal histories, reflecting on themes of destruction and renewal, lessons from cataclysms, and the long term history and future of an iconic Northwest terrain. 

What do science and the humanities each contribute to understanding such places?  And how does Mount Saint Helens inform its two million human neighbors' understanding of their place in nature?
