Lewis & Clark
More than 200 years ago two brave men launched one of the most amazing adventures of all time. President Thomas Jefferson asked Meriwether Lewis and William Clark to find a route to the Pacific coast. You may know them as the famous Lewis & Clark.
In 1804, they left from Saint Charles to explore new lands from Saint Charles to the Pacific Ocean. During their journey, Lewis and Clark came face-to-face with many wild animals, discovered unknown plants and encountered many American Indian cultures. The Lewis and Clark Boat House and Nature Center is a great place to learn more about the path Lewis and Clark took. The gift shop is filled with the unusual American Indian artwork they found during their travels.
