Weyerhaeuser Announces Mount St. Helens Forest Learning Center Operating Schedule

FEDERAL WAY, Wash., April 29, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --  Weyerhaeuser Company (NYSE: WY) today announced its 2013 operating schedule for the Charles W. Bingham Forest Learning Center located inside the blast zone at Mount St. Helens.

The center tells the story of the May 18, 1980 eruption of Mount St. Helens and the subsequent hand-planting of more than 18 million seedlings. Through interactive exhibits and displays appropriate for all ages, visitors learn about the eruption, forest recovery, reforestation and conservation of forest resources. The center is open May 17Sept. 2 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. daily. Admission is free. The gift shop, restrooms and outdoor amenities are open until 6 p.m. daily.

"This is a story of sustainability – of the mountain, of the forests and of people," said Rich Wininger, vice president, Western and Canadian Timberlands. "It's remarkable to see the seedlings we planted following the eruption growing to more than 75 feet tall now. It's a testament to our long-term view as stewards of our environment and the forest learning center is a fun and engaging way to learn about the mountain's history."

Teachers planning field trips and other large groups are asked to make reservations at least two weeks in advance. Visit www.TheForestReturns.com for more information.
