The display, which is the result of a yearlong effort will remain open through 2023. It features “interpretive panels, historical objects, and interactive stations” that allow guests to explore and interact “with the history and future of these important facilities and systems in Clark County and Southwest Washington,” the port reported. It looks at the Native American Nations and their relationships with the waterways and the creation of the Vancouver, Camas-Washougal and Ridgefield ports.
