Knappton Cove Heritage Center and the Pacific Northwest Living Historians (PNLH) will present a family-friendly living history program on Saturday, July 13th and Sunday, July 14th. During this two day event, costumed members of the PNLH will demonstrate the tools and skills employed by the explorers of the epic Lewis and Clark expedition. Dressed in clothing of the style and materials worn by the voyagers of the Corps in 1805, PNLH interpreters will demonstrate and discuss many of those tools and skills which may include:
· Safety in handling flintlock firearms
· Starting a fire with flint and steel

· Making clothing from leather
· Carving canoe paddles
· Trading for supplies
Visitors will also learn the history and stories of the Lewis and Clark expedition: the native people who they met, the unfamiliar territory they traveled and mapped, and the ‘new’ animals and plants they discovered.

On Saturday at 2:00pm, we will have a brief Annual Meeting and Lemonade Social where visitors can talk with Board Members and find out about our latest projects.

The program is FREE, although donations are welcomed.
