The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers will commemorate Oregon Trail Day at Bonneville Lock and Dam on Saturday, Nov. 18.

A short movie about the Oregon Trail will follow each presentation.
While at the dam, visitors can also stop by the Oregon Fish and Wildlife Fish Hatchery to catch a glimpse of Herman, the 10-foot-long sturgeon.
