The National Park Service's annual Brigade Encampment, a component of National Get Outdoors Day, re-enacts the jovial return of the fur brigades to Fort Vancouver – illuminating how day-to-day survival skills of trappers in the 1840s have become recreational pursuits today, and how our relationships to the natural world have changed over time.
