Bush Lake Chapter volunteers needed to staff our Chapter table and help out with the event.  Contact Gregg if you can help out.  We will be distributing Salt Watch and water quality info. 

Celebrate the 25th annual ice harvest at Richardson Nature Center! Experience the adventures of Minnesota’s hardy ice harvesters. Cut blocks of ice out of the pond with a vintage ice saw and pull an antique ice plow. Weigh blocks of ice, use chipping tools and make ice cubes. Discover food preservation techniques with historical interpreters from The Landing and hear stories from ice harvesting historians. Try a kicksled, throw a snow snake and watch an ice rescue demonstration by Bloomington Fire and Rescue. Keep warm by a campfire. This is a great event for families, grandparents and all people looking for a unique way to celebrate Minnesota winters. Drop-ins welcome.
