Wednesday, April 18th, 12:45 – 1:15pm
Please join us as our venerable Chapter Historians regale you with tales of Columbia River discovery and exploration. Find out why the Columbia Bar is called the Graveyard of the Pacific. Let them introduce you to the pilots who make the Columbia River navigable for ocean–going ships from the Pacific Ocean to Vancouver and Portland. They will also let you know where you can cross the River without swimming and talk briefly about Columbia River ports.
