Join North Dakota State University graduate student and environmental historian Lauren Wiese for a discussion about how ice from the Red River provided recreation and business opportunities as well as problems for local communities throughout history. In the early 20th century, ice was a source of recreation for residents and was used to keep perishables fresh. It also shortened the construction season, caused ice jams on the river, and increased pollution during the winter.

After the presentation, guests can explore the house and enjoy light refreshments provided by Rustica Eatery and Tavern. This program is part of the Hiram M. and Ada M. Drache Lecture Series.
