Inslee and Bill Nye (The Science Guy) “vs.” Mt. St. Helens?
So, this is kind of different, at least the timing.
Gov. Jay Inslee and Bill Nye The Science Guy, are going hiking on Mt. St. Helens on Thursday, July 8th.
According to Inslee's office:
"Gov. Jay Inslee will travel to Mount St. Helens with Bill Nye Thursday. They will go on a short hike to the Johnson Ridge Observatory and then will visit the Mount St. Helens Science and Learning Center to learn about the plans for the center and the importance of outdoor education and conservancy."
Conservancy is the conservation (or preservation) of a resource, according to various thesaurus definitions we looked up.
The events will begin shortly after 2 PM and will conclude later in the afternoon. We're all for promoting the incredible natural wonder that is Mt. St. Helens, even after the eruption, but with our state seemingly on the verge of becoming a giant box of starter wood for a fire, you might think the Gov. has more to deal with than this.
No word if Smoky the Bear will be accompanying the Governor and Nye on this expedition.
