Do you want an excuse to come to the coast? The Astoria Public Library Natural Selections Speaker Series continues.

At this library event, Sally Freeman and Judi Lampi will present an ethnobotanical tour of the Lewis and Clark Expedition’s 1805-1806 winter at Fort Clatsop. Using the Lewis and Clark Journals as a guide, Freeman and Lampi will describe how the indigenous people of the lower Columbia River used plants and what Expedition members ate during that time. Attendees also will hear about a holiday dinner that was not the explorers’ customary feast. 

This event is part of Natural Selections, the library’s monthly science and nature speaker series.
