Lewis & Clark National Historical Park (LEWI) was established in 2004 by incorporating new park units in Washington at Station Camp, Dismal Nitch and a portion of Cape Disappointment with several hundred acres of new lands in Oregon and the existing Fort Clatsop National Memorial (FOCL). FOCL was established in 1958 to commemorate the culmination and winter encampment of the Lewis and Clark Expedition.

LEWI encompasses 5 sites along 40 miles of the rugged Pacific coast in Oregon and Washington. Park ecosystems range from the coastal dunes, estuarine mudflats and tidal marshes, to shrub and forested swamps and upland coniferous rainforest, dominated by Sitka spruce as large as 6 feet in diameter. Ten types of wetlands occur within the park in palustrine, estuarine and riverine systems. Elevation ranges from 6 to 300 feet. The climate is characterized by relatively warm and dry conditions in the summer and fall and cool, wet conditions in the winter and spring.

Park Species List

Select a Species Category (optional):

What's the difference?

A Checklist contains only those species that are designated as "present" or "probably present" in the park.

The Full List with Details includes all the Checklist species plus species that are unconfirmed, historically detected, or incorrectly reported in the park. The Full List also contains species that are "in review" because their status in the park hasn't been fully determined. Additional details about the status of each species is included in the Full List.

The Checklist will almost always contain fewer species than the Full List.
