Steam-Fueled Forestry

August 17 @ 11:30 am - 12:00 pm

| Free

High pitched whistles pierced the air, steam powered gears spun and steel cables flurried to and fro to fuel the logging industry at the turn of the 20th century. At the center of this perfected mechanical movement was the Steam Donkey, an ingenious invention that revolutionized the industry, eased the lives of early loggers, and paved a path to modernization. Join us as we journey back to the time of steam engines to discover the mechanics behind this powerful metal monster!
