This final symposium commemorating the bicentennial of the Lewis and Clark Expedition is an open examination of the impact of the Voyage of Discovery on the people, environment, economy, infrastructure, and history of the American West.
Engaging environmental, economic, political, Native American, and policy points of view, Lewis & Clark College faculty and guest speakers will attempt to determine where exploration is headed in the 21st century and will provide a forum for reflection on what has been learned during this period of examination of the Lewis and Clark Expedition.
Sessions are held throughout the day, Friday and Saturday. For symposium fees and details of conference, consult Bicentennial Programs
