The Lewis & Clark Exploratory Center is invited to a historical talk in October. The Home Front Chapter --a Chapter of the Lewis & Clark Trail Heritage Foundation-- is having a meeting on Sunday, October 19th at 3 PM at the Senior Center (1180 Pepsi Place) in Charlottesville. Dr. Ken Wallenborn will be speaking on "Thomas Jefferson vs. Bonaparte: the Crisis that Forces the Purchase of the Louisiana Territory." Refreshments will be served. Attendance is free; membership in the Chapter is $10 a year. I have enjoyed Dr. Wallenborn's presentations in the past, and I'm sure there's a lot to learn.

Inspired by the Monarch butterfly, we're holding the Lewis & Clark Butterfly Festival 10 AM-3 PM on Saturday, October 4th. We'll have free and low cost activities for children and adults, including making butterflies out of paper, words, and fabric; constructing a flag out of small butterfly paintings, going for a hike looking for butterflies and their special plants; and building a caterpillar out of egg cartons. We'll also have our wooden boats on our special beach for people to take rides in.
Where: the Outdoor Terrace of the new Center in Darden Towe Park. (Take a left when you enter Darden Towe, and follow the road up the hill. We're on the left at the very end).
