Lewis & Clark
Richard and Sandra Hennings of Bear's Den Productions bring the story of one of America's greatest adventures,
the Lewis and Clark expedition to the public by using museum style displays that relate to various parts of the eight
thousand mile journey. Each of the displays relates to an entry from the journals. The displays vary according to
location or perceived interest at that particular site.
A few of the items that make up the various displays are from the time period, while others are recreated by some
of today's most talented artisans. Richard has also made quite a few of the pieces.
The Hennings attend several events throughout the year in Michigan, Indiana and Ohio, wherever the exploits of these
brave explorers can be told, and look forward to speaking with you about the two year, four month and nine day
adventure known as the Corps of Discovery.
Richard and Sandra are members of the Ohio River Chapter and the Badger State Chapter of the Lewis and Clark
Trail Heritage Foundation.
