Local residents can learn how to live well in the shadow of a volcano during a free event coming to the Buckley library.
Carolyn Driedger, a hydrologist and outreach coordinator for the United States Geological Survey Cascades Volcano Observatory, will give a presentation, "Living Well with a Volcano in your Backyard – Mount Rainier."
Her talk is planned for 6:30 p.m. May 22 at the library, 123 S. River Ave.
Driedger will share how to live well with the joys and hazards of having an active volcano nearby. She will also discuss how to prepare for volcano emergencies.
Presentations will be offered at branches of the Pierce County library system throughout May.
Pierce County's Department of Emergency Management Education Division sponsors these free events in observance of Volcano Awareness Month.
