    Connecting with Missouri River, USACE, Family

Where would you use the bathroom? How would you get food or water and where would you sleep? Instead of zombies, think 1960s and the threat? A potential nuclear disaster. Just in time for Halloween, peek into life in a fallout shelter as presented in a display at the Lewis and Clark Visitor Center at Gavins Point Dam during the 2014 recreation season.
