This project was a series of five interpretive sites along the Northwest Passage Scenic Byway along Highways 12 and 13 in north-central Idaho. Hired as the lead consultant, McCormack Landscape Architecture conducted public design charettes to gather the community's information and comments about the content of each interpretive site. The consultant team developed site plans, interpretive storylines, and recommended funding strategies to assist in construction costs. The landscape design features an information kiosk with four interpretive panels about Kamiah activities/events, history and the natural environment. Parking and sidewalk access was improved, and an automatic irrigation system was installed to water the existing and new planting beds. The planting scheme included plants native to the region. Four of the five sites were major interpretive elements for the recent Lewis and Clark Bicentennial commemoration in 2005-2006.
