                                  In Their Footsteps
                    Salmon Canneries in the Columbia River Estuary

      Lewis and Clark National Historical Park, Fort Clatsop is pleased to
      announce the park’s next free In Their Footsteps program.  This
      presentation is Salmon Canneries in the Columbia River Estuary by Irene
      Martin on Sunday, October 21, at 1:00 p.m.

      Many fish canneries have operated in the Columbia River Estuary over the
      years.  Two Washington units of Lewis and Clark NHP, Dismal Nitch and
      Middle Village-Station Camp, have historic fish processing sites in or near
      them.  Irene Martin’s research has resulted in a wealth of cannery-related
      photos, documents, artifacts, and stories that she will be sharing from.

      Irene Martin is a historian and author whose most recent book Flight of the
      Bumble Bee:  The Columbia River Packers Association and a Century in
      Pursuit of Fish chronicles the 1899-1980 history of Astoria’s Bumble Bee
      Seafoods.  She has also written Legacy and Testament: the Story of Columbia
      River Gillnetters and Beach of Heaven, a History of Wahkiakum County.  She
      has received the Washington Governor’s Heritage Award and co-owns two
      fishing vessels.

      This third Sunday forum is sponsored by the Lewis and Clark National Park
      Association and the park.  These programs are held in the Netul River Room
      of Fort Clatsop’s visitor center and are free of charge.

      For more information, call the park at (503) 861-2471.
