Missouri-Kansas Riverbend Chapter

Of the Lewis and Clark National Trail Heritage Foundation

The Riverbend Chapter supports the Lewis and Clark Trail Heritage Foundation locally by offering events, activities, educational programs, and protection of the Lewis & Clark National Historic Trail. The chapter encourages local interest in the expedition and related historic sites. Membership meetings are held quarterly; each offers an interesting educational program.

The Riverbend Chapter’s geographic area starts in the east at Fort Osage, a replica of a Missouri River fort built in 1808 by William Clark, and goes west through the Greater Kansas City Area and north along the Missouri River to Leavenworth and Atchison, Kansas, and St. Joseph, Missouri, and on to the Iowa state line. Please note: You don’t have to live within the geographic area to become a Riverbend member.

What are the benefits of joining the Riverbend Chapter? Learn about the most important expedition in our nation’s history. Find out about the many educational and tourist opportunities along the 4,900-mile national trail. Receive communications about local Lewis and Clark events. Most importantly, meet great, fun people whose dedication and commitment to telling the story of the 1803-06 expedition are boundless!
