Description

This event has been cancelled.

Although better known for its role in the buffalo robe trade, Bent, St. Vrain, & Co. were also heavily involved in the trade for beaver pelts, especially earlier in the fort’s history. Experience the sights, sounds, and smells of the beaver trade. Interact with trappers, in addition to the regular fort residents.
