Riverboat Cruise for Dakota Datebook ~ Plains Folk Essay ~ Horticulturist Ron Smith


Monday, August 19, 2019 – On Saturday we’ll be hosting the launch of the Dakota Datebook Book aboard the Lewis and Clark Riverboat on the Missouri River. That got us thinking that it might be interesting to learn more about the boat – its story, the various cruises offered, and what you can see when you’re aboard. Joining us is Aaron Barth, executive director of the Fort Abraham Lincoln Foundation, which operates the riverboat. ~~~ NDSU history professor Tom Isern shares a Plains Folk essay, “The Town Herd.” ~~~ Horticulturist Ron Smith’s inbox continues to gather questions. He stops by with some of the latest issues facing homeowners.
