The thrust of the Coldwater Ridge Visitor Center is the recovery of plant and animal life within the Mount St. Helens blast zone. There's a quarter-mile Winds of Change Interpretive Trail explaining the devastating effects of the volcano's eruption on Coldwater Ridge and the subsequent events that have brought about the ongoing recovery of life. What a sight!
