Exhibit tells the history of camping

The National Historic Oregon Trail Interpretive Center is hosting an exhibit about the history of camping until Sept. 8, in the center’s Flagstaff Gallery.

The exhibit, called “Traveling Light,” features a timeline that walks visitors through 200 years of camping history starting with the Lewis and Clark expedition in the early 1800s and ending with the Omnibus Public Lands Act of 2009.

Why look at two centuries of camping?

“The idea was to show when camping went from a necessity to a recreational pursuit,” said Gypsy Burks, the center’s exhibits specialist.

For the full story see Friday's print edition of the Baker City Herald.
