Rivers and their surrounding areas are the main geographic features of the Lewis and Clark National Historic Trail. Learn about conservation, storytelling, and outdoor adventure along some the largest water arteries in the United States – the Ohio River, the Missouri River and the Columbia River.
The Lewis and Clark National Historic Trail Experience uses a Geotourism methodology to build sustainability inside riverside communities and to conserve the history of The Lewis and Clark Expedition. As part of this strategy, Solimar hosts monthly expert seminars to create a knowledge-sharing forum for partners of the program. The latest seminar centered around conservation, storytelling and outdoor adventure on the Trail’s great rivers.
For this month’s expert panel, Solimar and the National Park Service were thrilled to welcome:
- Lily Hart, Digital Manager for the Confluence Project
- Brent Mortensen, Professor of Biology at Benedictine College (We will be working together to implement a wetlands restoration project for his students in the spring semester.)
- Brewster Rhoads, Convenor of the Ohio River Recreation Trail
