CANCELED through April 30 - Engines of Change: How Steam Powered the World

CANCELED through April 30 - Amid concerns about the potential spread of COVID-19, all public programs, events, and trainings in state parks and forests are canceled through April 30. 
Except for the parks and forests that have been announced as closed, state park and forest facilities remain open.

 

For thousands of years, humans had only three forms of power: wind, water, and muscle. Three hundred years ago, an English gentleman developed the first practical engine to work on a newly harnessed source of power – steam. As long as it was “fed” with a fuel, steam power worked tirelessly, and was the final link to bring on the Industrial Revolution. This program highlights how steam came to drive the modern world, and includes a demonstration with a working scale model steam engine.
