This is where you come because you are interested in the events that occurred in and around the Pierre/Fort Pierre area of South Dakota when Lewis & Clark came through here on their way to the Oregon Pacific coast, and again on their return.

Lewis & Clark's Corps of Discovery Expedition is a story that has fascinated both young and old since the very time it happened until now, and it is the mission of the Encounters On The Prairie of the Lewis & Clark Trail Heritage Foundation to keep alive the ideas that drove the men, and woman, of the Corps of Discovery to stay the course, to complete the mission of finding the Northwest Passage that would connect the country from sea to shining sea.
Following the theme of all things Lewis & Clark, our chapter, Encounters On The Prairie, is one of the most active chapters of the LCTHF, with scheduled events throughout the year, in commemoration of those events during the Expedition that occurred right here in our back yard!
By joining in on our activities, you will not only reinforce that part of history you've read in texts and other sources, we guarantee you will learn things you never expected to; hear accounts not available anywhere else, and do things that will simply amaze you! And afterward, you'll be telling your friends of the awesome experiences you're having!
