Lewis and Clark National Historical Park presents Channeling Your Inner Lewis & Clark, December 17 at the Fort Clatsop Visitors Center.

Lewis and Clark National Historical Park, Fort Clatsop announces their next 2017 autumn program, In Their Footsteps free speakers series. Channeling Your Inner Lewis & Clark: a Conversation for the Explorer in Each of Us presented by Richard Brenne will be Sunday, December 17, at 1pm.

Have you ever thought or said, "This is kind of like Lewis and Clark," while hiking, canoeing, or camping? Richard Brenne shares many of his odd adventures that channel the tiniest bit of Lewis and Clark, such as exploring Russia (like John Ledyard, Jefferson's first candidate to lead the expedition) and Turkey (where the Ionian Greeks began the kind of enlightenment that Jefferson and his personal secretary Lewis embodied) and the American West including many backpacking adventures. Once Brenne gets this conversation going, he'll be asking audience members to share how they've "channeled their inner Lewis and Clark."

Brenne is a mountain climber, world traveler, tour guide, freelance writer and award-winning screenwriter whose works have been produced by the Discovery Channel, HBO, and Warner Brothers. He also produces and moderates panel discussions and town meetings about human impacts on the earth.

In Their Footsteps speaker series is an opportunity to meet scholars, authors, and artists. Join the conversation and be inspired by history, people and culture. This free forum is presented at 1pm on Sundays in the Netul River Room at Fort Clatsop Visitor Center, Lewis and Clark National Historic Park.
