Our speaker will be Dick Williams who will present a program titled "A Retrospective Look at the Lewis and Clark Bicentennial: What Went Right and What Went Wrong."
Williams is retired after 35 years working for the National Park Service as a Park Ranger and Program Manager. He is a native of Kansas, veteran of service in the US Navy during the Vietnam War, and a graduate of the University of Northern Iowa. During his career in the Park Service, Williams worked in NPS areas including Yellowstone, Joshua Tree, Bighorn Canyon, Cape Lookout, and Homestead National Monument.
Williams has been a member of the Lewis and Clark Trail Heritage Foundation since 1991 and has worked closely with the foundation, and it's chapters, on many projects to preserve and protect the heritage of the Lewis and Clark Trail.
Knowing that the foundation faces many new challenges in the post-Bicen- tennial world, Williams is dedicated to assisting the foundation in any way possible to further the goal of preserving the history of the Lewis and Clark Trail.
