The Sacagawea statue in Great Falls, MT

The Portage Route Chapter of the Lewis and Clark Trail Heritage Foundation has agreed to serve as a 501(c)(3) organization (making donations tax-deductible) in the drive to keep the "Arduous Journey" statue of Sacagawea in Great Falls, Montana.

The 9 1/2-foot-tall bronze statue was created by Montana artist C.A. "Carol" Grende, who died from cancer complications and pneumonia in March this year. The plan is to raise $80,000 to purchase the sculpture and place it near the new federal courthouse on the west bank of the Missouri River.
