Rock Springs Nature Center, Exhibit Hall

Candlelight Tour at Homestead Prairie Farms Exhibit runs from January 14, 2013 - December 31, 2013

Rock Springs Nature Center

Admission is free!
This breathtaking exhibit is a locally created collection of photographs, 2D and 3D artwork and brief writings created by the members of the Corps of Discovery.

The exhibit was inspired and highlights the adventures, journals, and scientific observations of the original Lewis and Clark Corps of Discovery which set off in May of 1804 to explore the unchartered west. View history in a new light! Guides in period clothing give you insight into the past as you tour the Homestead Prairie Farm, an 1860 house museum, by lamp and candlelight.
