Supporting the Fort for over 50 years.

The Lewis & Clark National Park Association (LCNPA) was established in 1963 as a 501(c)3 non-profit organization for the purpose of supporting National Park Service educational and interpretive activities at Fort Clatsop.

Our contributions include purchasing land for the park, funding the construction of trails and exhibits, publishing books, and supporting educational activities.

The Association receives no public funds, nor is it funded by any private endowment.

The LCNPA needs YOU!

The Lewis & Clark National Park Association relies on bookstore sales and memberships to support park activities. Your membership could be the next meal for a volunteer, shipping for our Traveling Trunks program, or new supplies for Living History.

As an Association Member, you will receive a 10% discount on most bookstore purchases in store and online, as well as discounts at stores run by cooperative associations at National Park Service sites across the nation. You will also receive a subscription to our quarterly newsletter and invitations to special events.
