The STORY of ICE HARVESTING at WALDEN POND Sundays, February 12th and March 11th 1:00pm-2:00pm

Learn how tons of ice were “harvested” from Walden Pond and shipped to places as far away as India! Hear Henry David Thoreau’s description of the small army of workers coming to Walden to cut the ice, for Frederick Tudor, the “Ice King.” Meet a park interpreter at the Thoreau house replica near the parking lot for a talk and walk to Ice Fort Cove on the far side of Walden Pond. Be sure to dress for the winter weather and 1 ½  mile walk.
