Wagon Rides and Ice Harvest Day

Saturday, Jan 26, 2013 11:00a to 3:00p
Richardson Nature Center Bloomington, MN

Discover Minnesota’s history before electric refrigerators, when hardy ice harvesters sawed massive blocks of ice out of frozen lakes and ponds to keep food during warmer months. Use real ice tools and try harvesting with ice harvesting historian Tim Graf and costumed interpreters from The Landing. Learn about water quality and ice safety. Cut blocks with an old fashioned ice saw, pull an antique ice plow and weigh blocks of ice. Enjoy a wagon pulled by Percheron horses. Keep warm with outdoor campfires… Show more
