Mosquito Hill Nature Center – Embarrass River Brigade Rendezvous
May 14, 2022 - May 15, 2022
Step back to a simpler time when beaver hides were the unit of currency and waterways were highways. Come visit a fur trapper’s rendezvous encampment, circa 1824, on top of Mosquito Hill.
Campers will demonstrate skills of the period dressed in clothing of that day. You may see fire starting with flint and steel, flint knapping to make arrow points, candle making, rope making, calligraphy and yarn spinning. Have a seat by the fire and hear the telling of tall tales. Learn about the difficult life of early American fur trappers and settlers.
