Set up to celebrate and honor the life of Sacajawea, the young Shoshone girl without whose bravery, knowledge and family connections the Corps of Discovery expedition would almost certainly have failed, this center is located in the heart of her homeland. A small interpretive center focuses on her role in the early 19th century expedition led by Lewis and Clark, and also highlights the culture and crafts of the Agai Dika Shoshone people today. If you have time, a scenic nature trail takes you along the Lemhi River.
If you go:
The visitor centre is open from Memorial Day weekend through to the end of September; opening times are Mon-Sat 9am-5pm, Sunday 12:30pm-5pm. The centre is a focal point for concerts, historical/cultural heritage presentations and community activities.
