Program 1

Public Programs

Travelers' Rest Preservation and Heritage Association (TRPHA) supports and promotes programming at Travelers' Rest State Park. This park encompasses the core of the historic Lewis and Clark Travelers' Rest campsite. TRPHA is working to develop trails inside the park and an innovative interpretive plan to accommodate more than 5,000 annual visitors we anticipate over the next three years. Interpretation at the park is currently handled by three staff and 25 volunteers who provide guided tours and staff and bookshoand visitors can follow the 1/2 mile trail using an interpretive brochure as their guide. In addition to telling the story of Lewis and Clark, we will also include Native American perspectives. The park lies near the site of the crossroads of Native American trails and on the site of a centuries-old Native American campsite. Other interpretive themes will cover the pioneer and natural histories of the area.
