Natural History of the Gorge

On the mezzanine level is a field tent containing information about the geology of the Gorge. On one side are the tools used by a geologist. On the other side is material on botany and entomology. The surrounding exhibit cases contain the carefully crafted wood carvings of the fish, birds and mammals Lewis and Clark identified in the Gorge.

Enter the DeGroote Theater and experience the formation of the Gorge from a 12-minute program. It is self-activated, which means as a visitor you can see it on demand. The surround sound and special effects make geology exciting, informative and enjoyable.
