their particular interest and planning. If you know of a resource that
should be included in this library, or would like to comment on the library
in general, please fill out the Feedback

are positive, many state and federal agencies, groups and individuals who
have specific expertise and management mandates, have joined together to
plan strategies and to form partnerships. Many of these agencies and individuals

Montana is home to numerous museums, visitor centers, missions and
homes which house Lewis & Clark exhibits, displays, artifacts, paintings,
sculptures and more--so many in fact, that one could spend years traveling
to see them all. This is a growing list of these facilities and information
on their hours, locations, and the exhibits they are featuring.

As the Bicentennial nears, it seems one of the best ways to step back
in time and join the Expedition is to travel the very trail Lewis &
Clark traveled. These guides and tours offer a chance to do just that,
while providing important historical accuracy and a wide variety of activities
and routes. Listed here are "Step-On" Guides, who can guide you along the
trail for various lengths of time on either land, air or water. Also listed
are Tour Companies who arrange for group and individual tours, often providing
transportation and lodging. All the contact information for either types
of adventures are listed.
