Description This new exhibit is for people of all ages, including children. It explores the significant role plants played in the L&C Expedition. White men needed food--such as Mandan corn and squash...which they received in trade for items desired by the Indians, such as glass beads, wrought iron goods, medallions, woolen blankets and tobacco.

This exhibit will be expanded in 2006 to include four of the original L&C plant specimens on loan from The Academy of Natural Sciences in Philadelphia.
