LEAVING A LASTING LEGACY ON THE LEWIS AND CLARK TRAIL
The Lewis and Clark Educational Trail will create an interactive experience for kids providing the opportunity for creative play and standards-based learning in the great outdoors. In addition to creating a trail that is environmental, educational, and physical, this project will beautify the front of Lewis and Clark Elementary and establish a one-of-a-kind symbol of pride for the students, teachers and parents of Caroline County.
HOW YOU CAN HELP – Make a donation, buy a brick, volunteer, or give resources.
Gifts of any kind at any level over $100 are offered the opportunity to place a brick engraved in their name or the name of their organization on the trail. All other levels will also get a brick, but may include engraved plaques on the benches, canoes, podium and state markers. The Jeffersonian and Expedition levels will be named on the Trail sign.
