Lewis & Clark National Historical Park offers its Spring 2020 In Their Footstep Series, a forum of guest speakers and presentations at Fort Clatsop Visitor Center. Programs are free and begin at 1pm in the Netul River Room.

March 15
Hornsmith Scott Morrison presents the History of Powder Horns.

Scott Morrison is a Journeyman with the Honourable Company of Horners, a nationwide guild of contemporary horn workers and collectors. His presentation will be on powder horns and horn objects that were made and used from colonial times to the present. As common as plastic is today, people have long used horn to make everyday household items. Discover the many practical and beautiful uses of the material and see a display of several original antique powder horns dating from the 18th and 19th centuries, as well as contemporary powder horns and horn items. This program is second in the spring series, held on the third Sunday of the month, February through May. Other upcoming programs include:

April 19
The Louisiana Purchase and the World that Gave Rise to It, presented by professor Dr. James Armstead.

May 17
Early Explorers of the Pacific Northwest – A Long Time Coming by historian and author Robert Heacock
