With the 200th Anniverisary of the Lewis and Clark Expedition commencing next year, what are various Scout units doing to commemorate/celebrate or participate?

Our Cub Scout Adventureland hopes to build a replica of Lewis and Clark's Ft. Clatsop by next summer. When not being used for summer camp, the facility will hopefully be used for several community events relating to the Expedition, such as demonstrations of cooking and other activities of that time period, presentations on animals and plants in our area and native american populations of that time. Since we are far from the original trail, all activities will be geared for our location (southwest Michigan) but to the time period of the Lewis and Clark expedition. You can check out the Ft. Clatsop website and also the Lewis and Clark Bicentennial Commission website for more information and ideas. Good luck!

Living in Oregon, we will naturally be right in the middle of some of the celebration. We have talked some of canoeing a portion of the Columbia River west of Portland to Astoria at the mouth of the river. This will correspond to the L&C route down the river. Since this is late in their journey, in 1805, we have several years to match up with the 200 year celebration here. We did the same stretch of the river several years ago, so we have a head start on the planning. If any troop would like to join us, or merely needs help in planning and information sharing, let me know.
