Collectively, volunteers put in about 142,000 hours of annually service along the Lewis and Clark National Historic Trail. One man who has put in a good chunk of those hours is Ken Schlueter! He started volunteering at the Lewis and Clark National Historic Trail six years ago, after retiring from Union Pacific here in Omaha, Nebraska. During the winter months, Ken manages the visitor center email account, answering questions about Lewis and Clark from people all around the world. Once the weather gets warmer, he tells people about the Bob Kerrey Pedestrian Bridge, the Missouri River, and directs guests towards the visitor center.
We got a personal lesson on the bridge today. It was a little chilly, but well worth the cold! Thanks Ken!
