Commission Overview

The Montana Lewis & Clark Bicentennial Commission was created by the 55th Montana Legislature to aid in preparation for the Bicentennial of Lewis & Clark in Montana to be celebrated from 2003-2006. It is comprised of 12 Commissioners who are responsible for providing the overall leadership and coordination of Montana's Bicentennial Observance. The Commission meets regularly, as well as sponsors a number of conferences and workshops to aid communities in their respective planning for Bicentennial events, activities and projects. The Commission hired an Executive Director, Clint Blackwood, in May of 1998 to oversee the execution of the goals it has set out for the coming years. The Commission is working hard to promote education of the Expedition including the history of Montana's Indian people at the time of the Expedition, and to generate, maintain and coordinate Montanans' enthusiasm for this historical event.
