History & Culture
President Thomas Jefferson’s had for years been fascinated by the vast and virtually unknown territory west of the Mississippi River. He sent an exploratory party overland to the Pacific and by 1806 they had settled in at Fort Clatsop.

Lewis and Clark National Historical Park rings the ecologically significant Columbia River estuary, with 12 units in southwest Washington and northwest Oregon. Its regional maritime climate is warm and dry in summer and fall, mild and wet in winter and spring.

Come explore our outdoor classroom. Based at Fort Clatsop, it connects students to the stories that have shaped the Columbia Pacific region.
