NORTHWEST JOURNEY – THE CORPS OF DISCOVERY
In the first of a trilogy series called 'Westward Journeys' to be presented over the next three summers, presenter, Sandi Phillips, will take us adventuring on the westward path of Lewis and Clark. Join the Corps of Discovery in 1803 to learn about the geology, the history, and the cultures in the areas through which Captains Meriwether Lewis and William Clark with their band of adventurers traveled on the search for a pathway to the Pacific. Meet the corpsmen, the interpreters, the hunters, and the native peoples who shared in this great adventure and changed the future of the American northwest.
These classes are free and open to the public. Registration is required.

Instructor Sandi Phillips is a geophysicist with 25 years of experience working on projects in North and South America, Europe, Asia, and Africa. She met her partner, Rocky Romero, while working in Africa and in 2002 they took early retirement and developed a multi-year plan to SEE, DO and LEARN about other places and other cultures. Since then they have lived in six countries on four continents. In 2013 they bought a cottage in Texas as their home base while continuing their vagabond lifestyle.
