Sally Freeman and Judi Lampi will present an ethnobotanical tour of the Lewis and Clark Expedition’s 1805-1806 winter at Fort Clatsop at a free Astoria Library event. They will describe how the indigenous people of the lower Columbia 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.
Sally Freeman is a national park ranger at Lewis and Clark National Historical Park. Judi Lampi taught ethnobotany at the Health Sciences Biotechnology Magnet School in Portland, and later worked as a national park ranger at Fort Clatsop.
This event is part of “Natural Selections,” the Astoria Library’s science and nature speaker series.
