The day begins with a continental breakfast, hear two different lectures on relevant topics regarding Lewis and Clark and the coastal area, meet tribal representatives and buy native-made gifts, cruise the Lower Columbia for three hours with narration from a variety of experts, and enjoy a hot plated lunch.
Guests on the Spirit will include authors like Dr. Gary Moulton, editor of the Journals of the Lewis and Clark Expedition.
