Attend Ice Harvest Festival at Richardson Nature Center

Photography by: Dick Bergstrom

Drop into Richardson Nature Center on January 25th to explore examples of how Minnesota’s winters are changing and what we can all do to reduce our carbon footprint. Experience the adventures of Minnesota’s hardy ice harvesters by cutting and weighing blocks of ice, pulling an ice plow, making ice cubes and more. Investigate the changes we’ve seen over 22 years of hosting this event and what ice harvesters saw 120 years ago. Attend solutions-focused climate workshops and stop by the resource fair for tips on what you can do to make a difference. Watch ice rescue demonstrations by Bloomington Fire and Rescue, sip on hot cocoa and discover fun ways to get outside in winter. Drop in anytime. In partnership with Climate Generation: A Will Steger Legacy.
