January 17, 2019
Lewis and Clark National Historical Park, Fort Clatsop has announced the next In Their Footsteps free speaker series event. Historic Winter Transportation by Richard Brenne will be Sunday, January 20, at 1:00 p.m.
People of northern climes have long used various methods of transportation specific to winter weather such as skis, sleds, and snowshoes. Did the Lewis and Clark Expedition use any of these or note seeing Indians use these tools? Join Brenne for a discussion of the history of these transportation techniques.
Brenne is a skier, mountain climber, world traveler, tour guide, freelance writer and award-winning screenwriter whose works have been produced by the Discovery Channel, HBO and Warner Brothers. He also produces and moderates panel discussions and town meetings about human impacts on the earth. His program will be of particular interest to those who love anthropology (including conjectural anthropology), big picture history, the Lewis and Clark Expedition, skiing, snowshoeing, sledding, dog-sledding, or Scandinavian, Alpine and Western Mountain history.
In Their Footsteps is a monthly Sunday forum sponsored by the Lewis & Clark National Park Association and the park. These programs are held in the Netul River Room of Fort Clatsop’s visitor center and are free of charge.
