Client: City of Lewiston Parks Department
Location: Lewiston, Idaho  
Completion Date: Summer 2013
 
View from Blue Bridge toward Canoe Wave sculpture and Salmon Mural.

McCormack Landscape Architecture is providing interpretation and landscape design for this project that marks the western entry for the city of Lewiston. A "canoe wave" sculpture was installed last year by artist Chris Fennell, and a salmon mural by artist Rolf Goetzinger was completed in April 2013.
 
MLA is working with the Nez Perce Tribe and Lapwai area K-12 students to develop tribal "petroglyph" art that will be sandblasted onto local basalt boulders. Interpretive signs will be installed to describe the importance of the Snake and Clearwater rivers to the Nez Perce people. Native plants that are important to the Nez Perce for food, medicine and other uses will be planted along the slope adjacent to the US Army Corps pond. The landscaping and interpretation is scheduled to be completed this summer.
