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.
