Mission Statement

The mission of the Volunteers in Parks program of Lewis and Clark National Historical Park is to provide individuals opportunities to commemorate, preserve, and communicate the stories associated with the Corps of Discovery and its winter near the mouth of the Columbia River. Volunteers are important team members of the park staff and are encouraged to participate in all trainings, meetings, special events, etc. that are available to staff. This program will affirm their ownership and stewardship of this park and the entire National Park Service and will honor their specific contributions.

Description

Lewis and Clark NHP commemorates the winter encampment of the 33 member Lewis and Clark Expedition. The center-piece of the park is a replica of Fort Clatsop, the explorers' headquarters located about 6 miles south of Astoria. The Fort Clatsop unit includes the fort replica, trails, a visitor center with movies, exhibits, and a bookstore. The Netul Landing unit is nearby and includes parking and a canoe/kayak launch site. The Fort-to-Sea Trail starts at the fort and goes 6.5 miles to Sunset Beach on the Pacific Ocean.
