The center opened it's doors for free today and celebrated with demonstrations and ice cream for visitors.

"Well today is our 16th anniversary, the Lewis and Clark Interpretive Center opened on the first Sunday in May back in 1998. So 16 years now we have been open and we're just having a day to celebrate that event and to say thank you to all the people who have come to visit us all throughout the years," says Jeff LaRock, Center Manager.
