Expedition Days commemorates Lewis’ & Clark’s 1806 camp at Travelers’ Rest. The Expedition stopped here from June 30 – July 3 to rest, hunt, tend to equipment, and finalize their plans to split into two groups for the return trip through Montana.
Outdoor activities include guided tours of the park with a station in the Native Plant Garden. The day will also include demonstrations of traditional skills like bullet making, flint knapping, hide tanning, Native American games, and more. Exact times and topics will be announced in early June.
