Lewis & Clark Expedition Bicentennial Project

On May 14, 2004, the United States will celebrate the bicentennial of an event that changed the course of our history and changed the history of the world. The event to be celebrated is the beginning of the Lewis and Clark expedition.

The AFMS created a new committee with a project goal to produce a traveler's guide to the rocks, minerals, and fossils along the Lewis and Clark Trail.

Brenda Hankins was the chair for this committee.

The Publication

 The traveler's guide has been completed and can now be downloaded by using the menu item on the left of the page, or by clicking the link below:
