A crew of employees from the Heritage Woodriver, Illinois operations office (St. Louis area), helped out at the Lewis & Clark Confluence Tower. Working with their Master Gardener, Judy, our team started a partnership to provide landscaping assistance. This week, our team weeded and deadheaded flower beds that showcase examples of plants that Lewis and Clark sent back to Jefferson from their explorations.
And, don’t hesitate to stop in for a visit if you are nearby or travel through the area!
About the Confluence Tower: “What began as a grassroots citizens group looking to commemorate the bicentennial celebration of the Lewis & Clark Expedition, now stands a structure that honors the place where men courageously set out west to discover the nation’s prosperous lands centuries ago. Climb 50, 100 and 150 feet above the confluence of the Mississippi and Missouri rivers and look down on their waters and the story where two explorers began their journey westward. From the three levels, vantage points give way to communities, history and stories of life along the riverbanks. The three levels can be reached by elevator or stairs. The Tower is ADA accessible.”
