Hopefully by the time you read this article we will have our first corn-burning heater installed at Prairie Woods. This project is being made possible by the support of American Energy Systems Inc. of Hutchinson, John Duevel of Three Seasons and More, Farm Credit Services of the Minnesota Valley and Kandiyohi County. The corn burning stove will sit prominently in the exhibit area of the education building and provide a great place for skiers and snowshoers to warm up. This high efficiency corn burning stove is our first installment of sustainable technology demonstrations at Prairie Woods. Visitors to Prairie Woods will enjoy the warmth provided by a locally available, renewable energy source.
