Story: The brochure is the result of a cooperative effort between numerous the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and numerous state agencies. All of the agencies contributed information, graphics and data. The Corps designed the brochure and printed the initial run.

State Park offices and Department of Conservation Nature Centers along the Lewis and Clark trail provide primary distribution points. The brochure is distributed free of charge to the general public. The brochure has been extremely popular and won the ESRI International User Conference 2003 Cartographic Publication Award and the Corps worldwide Journalism contest.
The purpose of the brochure is to help renew the publics interest in the Lewis and Clark National Historic Trail and the Missouri River. The brochure contains a wealth of information about the various recreation opportunities that can be found along the river. It contains a complete listing of river access points, public camping and fuel availability sites. All public lands are shown on the maps along with references to help users contact the managing agencies for more detailed information.
