Old Time Logging Demo

February 9 @ 11:00 am- 1:00 pm CST

Come out to Itasca State Park and discover the history of early horse logging, an industry common to this area in the late 1800s. Watch lumberjacks fell trees with a 2-man cross-cut saw, buck the log into sections, skid the logs and cross-haul logs onto a horse drawn sled.

Members of the Lake Itasca Region Pioneer Farmers will be on hand to demonstrate these early logging methods.

NOTES: Dress according to the weather. Program is held outside in the woods. Please be prepared with warm hats, gloves, snow pants and snow boots. Be prepared to walk/stand in deep snow.

In case of poor weather, event will be cancelled.

Duration of program will be weather dependent.
