Homecoming Events

The Kentucky Lewis and Clark Bicentennial Commission is gearing up for the 2006 Homecoming of the explorers. In November, Kentucky will celebrate the 200th anniversary of the return of the Corps of Discovery from their journey through the American West to the Pacific Ocean. Both Lewis and Clark traveled directly through the heart of the commonwealth on their way to Washington, D.C., to report to President Thomas Jefferson.

The Kentucky Lewis and Clark Bicentennial Commission encourages individuals and communities across the commonwealth to participate in Homecoming events. The commission has made grant money available to support programming for this and other Lewis and Clark related projects. Educational programming, speaking events, archaeological digs, and exhibits are just a few of the wonderful programs that can occur. Donít be left out of the fun! Plan something for your area.

Trail Extension

An effort is being made to officially extend the Lewis and Clark National Historic Trail east of the Mississippi River. This extension would properly reflect the true "sea to shining sea" scope of the Lewis and Clark Expedition and include the Eastern Legacy states, including Kentucky. Your support is needed! Please contact your member of Congress to voice your support for this initiative. Kentucky's legislature and the governor's office are supportive of this movement. Kentucky's inclusion as an official trail state is not only historically accurate but will also have positive tourism and economic impact.

Read the trail extension resolution currently before the Kentucky General Assembly.
