The Lewis and Clark National Historic Trail Geotourism Program strives to provide benefits to the businesses, destinations, and points of interest along the Trail by helping connect them with visitors and residents.
Managers of businesses and other points of interest are invited to submit descriptions of their properties to be featured on this website.
Once verified, these listings are able to promote the fact that they are a supporter of the Lewis and Clark National Historic Trail and be promoted through this website and other activities.
Businesses, destinations, and points of interest who participate in the Sustainable Tourism program will be featured on this website. You will have the ability to create your own page, upload your own content, and edit it at your convenience.
Approved participants will then receive an official Lewis and Clark National Historic Trail Sustainable Tourism decal to display at their storefront or other public area, as well as a digital badge to add to their website or social media channels.
