Rangers from Missouri National Recreational River (MNRR) will open the Dakota Territorial Capitol replica in Yankton’s Riverside Park, Douglas Street at the river, from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm Monday August 19 through Friday, August 23. This week’s exhibit, the last for this summer, will feature replicas of articles used by the Lewis and Clark Expedition 1804-1806. Rangers will explain the use of the items and their importance to the success of the mission. Visitors may join the ranger for a walk to the Meridian Bridge for a short talk on the natural or cultural history of the Missouri River at 11:30, 12:30, and 3:00 pm. MNRR officials report that the capitol programs have been very popular this summer with over 700 residents and visitors attending. Additional exhibits and Kids’ programs are being planned for next summer.
