Heritage History Lab Returns to Rice Creek Chain of Lakes Park

According to KMSP-TV

Anoka County Parks and Recreation is encouraging schools to sign up for the Heritage Living History Lab this fall.
The outdoor living history program, which takes place at the Rice Creek Chain of Lakes Regional Park Reserve, lets students experience Minnesota history through eight different time periods.
The eight stations are led by presenters dressed in period costumes and teach students about milling, mining, and lumbering, which is this year’s topic.
According to a statement from the nature center, the program serves approximately 250-300 students in grades 1-7 every day.
The program will be offered for 15 days beginning Set. 14. For more information or to register, call 651-429-8007.
