Lewis & Clark Bicentennial in Oregon (LCBO)

The Oregon Heritage Commission, whose mission is to secure, sustain, enhance and promote Oregon’s heritage, adopted the Lewis & Clark Bicentennial in 1996 recognizing the impact of the Expedition on Oregon’s history.  Lewis & Clark Bicentennial in Oregon (LCBO) initially began in 1998 as a coalition of individuals interested in determining how the Bicentennial should be commemorated in Oregon, winning the endorsement of the Commission to coordinate statewide heritage events. LCBO subsequently incorporated as a non-profit in 1999, with administrative oversight by the Oregon Historical Society.

With guidance from Governor Kitzhaber’s office, the LCBO board was expanded in April 2002 to more broadly represent Oregon citizens and organizations with a stake in the bicentennial.  The current board and 60+ partners from throughout the state guide the efforts of LCBO and Oregon’s observance of the Lewis & Clark Bicentennial.

Oregon’s commemoration will provide significant benefits to Oregonians and visitors alike, and LCBO’s mission is to ensure that the state has a fully developed and well supported bicentennial plan of activities.  LCBO’s strategic plan outlines the state’s key programs, and identifies the wide variety of other projects being planned and executed throughout Oregon.

LCBO’s tasks over the next few years are tremendous, yet attainable with support from the public and private sectors in Oregon.  The organization’s ambitious strategy is one that will not only create opportunities for people to enjoy, understand and participate in the bicentennial, but that will also create lasting legacy programs that will endure well beyond 2006, the final year of the national bicentennial observance.
