Park Sponsors and Partners

With more than 100 people involved on the task force, we have made great strides toward completion of Lewis and Clark Historic Park at Kaw Point, hosting numerous education projects and the Great Plains Chautauqua, and preparations for the 2004 Commemorative Event. Past donations of funds and services helped make this progress possible. Formed in 2007, the task-forced evolved to become the Friends of

Kaw Point Park (FOKPP, Inc.), a 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to the development of this historic site.
