From the MN DNR - December 16, 2018
Without matches, lighters, or other modern tools, most of us would be in big trouble if we needed a fire without them.
Learn traditional and historic fire starting technologies and try them out. We'll be playing with flint-and-steel, bow drills, magnifiers, and other techniques including the use of native mushrooms and fungi to aid in your efforts.
The free course will be offered Saturday, December 22 from 1 to 3 pm. Meet for the drop in program at the fireplace behind the Visitor Center. The Park is 5 miles northeast of Silver Bay on State Highway 61.
