NASELLE – A Lewis and Clark living history interactive program is happening 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, July 13, and from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Sunday, July 14, at the Knappton Cove Heritage Center. The program is free and donations are welcome.

The museum inside the historic U.S. Quarantine Station building will be open from 12- 4 p.m. both days.

Throughout the two-day event, costumed members of the Pacific Northwest Living Historians will demonstrate the tools and skills utilized during the Lewis and Clark expedition, including handling flintlock firearms, camp cooking, starting fires with flint and steel, making clothing and canoe paddles.
