Discover the adventure of winter hiking on guided snowshoe walks led by Wilderness Inquiry at 1 and 3 pm at the historic Pond House. Snowshoes are provided, or bring your own. Group size is limited, so sign up that day is on a first-come first-served basis. Play the traditional Dakota games of Snow Snakes and Lacrosse as well as outdoor frontier games, noon – 4 pm. Then warm up indoors by the fireplace with cocoa and cookies. See demonstrations and displays and try your hand using a variety of 19th century tools. Hear Reverend Pond tell harrowing and hilarious stories of winter life on the early Minnesota frontier. All activities are free.
