This set of pages has been designed for you to learn more about the Corps of Discovery and the people and places associated with it.
When the Corps of Discovery reached the camp (now known as Canoe Camp) near what is now Orofino, ID, the Nez Perce Indians taught the explorers how to turn timber into transportation.
The dugout canoes made there became the main mode of transit down the Clearwater, Snake, and Columbia Rivers.
Visit this site to find out how it was done then and how it will be done again this summer for The Lewis & Clark Experience!
This site will give you interesting and informative looks at the Corps of Discovery and how it made history. Special moments from the expedition will be posted. Here you will find out more about how the Corps of Discovery and those they met made history almost two hundred years ago!
Visit this site often, as it will be updated frequently.
A wealth of resources regarding the Corps of Discovery can be found on the Internet as well as in more traditional sources. This site provides you with access to these resources as well as other treasures related to the Expedition, the places, the people, and the times in which it happened.
