ince January of 2009 the ownership and management of Discovering Lewis & Clark® have been in the hands of the Lewis and Clark Fort Mandan Foundation of Washburn, North Dakota. Our intention is not only to preserve and maintain the site as it has evolved since it opened in 1998, but also to undertake a series of new initiatives and historical investigations, and to introduce emerging technologies at appropriate times, in pursuit of our mission to make this the most comprehensive and useful Lewis and Clark website on the Internet.
We welcome serious suggestions, comments and queries from our readers via the "Contact" utility at left, above. We are eager to receive proposals for articles, photo essays, and other contributions to Discovering Lewis & Clark®. More about the Lewis and Clark Fort Mandan Foundation will be found on the Credits page, listed above at left.
