Giant City State Park
On Saturday, January 28th from 1-4pm join Mark Denzer and follow the
progression of humanity’s relationship with fire!
Take a look through ancient and modern lenses to discover how we have manipulated this
powerful element through time. From ceremonial and ritual uses to transforming landscapes and
mundane daily uses, fire has been our partner since time immemorial.
After the lecture, participate in hands-on training. Mark’s 25 years of experience with primitive
technologies will guide you in your own experience of creating fire. Through friction,
percussion, and tool use, you will gain first hand experience in ancient ways!
This program is free and open to the public, but registration is required. For more information,
