75 Years of History at Rice Lake National Wildlife Refuge

September 3, 2010

Rice Lake National Wildlife Refuge staff, Friends of Rice Lake Refuge and members of the Ojibwe band celebrated the 75th anniversary of Rice Lake Refuge.

The community came from all over the region to learn about how Rice Lake Refuge has been the crossroads of natural and cultural history via demos and stories of traditional ecological knowledge of wild rice and birch bark, blacksmithing, wood-fired cooking, horse logging and wagon rides. Great fun was had by all!
