DARBY, Mont. (AP) - A small Montana town plans a new park to honor Sacagawea, the Native American guide who assisted the Lewis and Clark expedition.

The park will be located on a vacant lot on Main Street in Darby. The area is known as one of the few places the Lewis and Clark expedition passed through twice.

An artist has agreed to contribute a bronze sculpture of Sacagawea for the cost of the foundry fee. The Missoulian reports (https://bit.ly/2p7q4P3) fund-raising for the $10,000 fee is under way.

Others promise to donate a fence and log siding for the park.

A community meeting on the project is set for Wednesday at Darby Elementary School.
