LEWIS AND CLARK VS GRIZZLIES BATTLE AT MONTANA HISTORICAL SOCIETY
Lewis and Clark encountered many difficulties on their Journey of Discovery, but pe3rhaps the biggest and badest was the grizzly bear.
On Thursday (Feb. 23) at 6:30 p.m. Duane Buchi will present a free public program, “Lewis and Clark vs Ursus Horribilis,” to talk about the ways in which the encounters with the grizzlies shaped the outcome of the expedition.
Buchi works for the Great Falls Lewis and Clark Interpretive Center and has studied how the Corps of Discovery dealt with the bears that were virtually unknown in the young nation that clung to the eastern seaboard.
