10th Annual Corps of Discovery
May 15-18, 2014
85 Township Road 1305
In May of 2014, the tenth annual National Rendezvous and Living History Foundation's Corps of Discovery teaching event will take place to help educate attendees on the ways of living and surviving in the American colonial era, between 1640 and 1840.
What is the Corps of Discovery?
This event is a learning exploration - much like Lewis and Clark when their expedition left for the great unknown from the banks of the Ohio River in 1804. What experiences can be explored? In the past we offered many seminars such as wing-bone turkey calls, cooking on an open fire with Dutch ovens, the art of scrimshaw, bow/arrow demonstrations, tomahawk and knife throwing and blacksmithing.
The staff of Corps of Discovery would like to extend an invitation to your group, school or home school. We are always seeking interested parties to attend and especially in expanding the number of school and home school visits. Please let us know if your group would be interested by calling (724) 947-4931 after 6:00pm or dropping an e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org .
