Lewis and Clark's mission was three-fold: determine whether a Northwest Passage existed, document the natural life, Native life, and geography, and establish diplomatic relations with Natives on behalf of the U.S. government.
Korchnak and Bell's mission will also be three-fold: to recreate elements of Lewis and Clark’s journey, to establish cross-curricular connections between history and science drawing inspiration from the environment and history of the West, and to have a grand adventure that will energize us on a personal and professional level.
