Carlos Avery Fall Survey: Sat, Oct 3

posted Sep 15, 2020, 3:50 PM by Jonathan Poppele   [ updated ]

We are excited to announce our Fall Wildlife Tracking Survey

In-person at Carlos Avery Wildlife Management Area


Our Fall Survey will be an all day affair. We will start the day by gathering (socially distanced) at Tolzmann Park in the nearby City of Wyoming. We will then head out in (masked) teams to survey for animal tracks & sign before returning to Tolzmann Park to share our discoveries. We will have several experienced trackers, certified in Track & Sign interpretation, available to join teams.

Carlos Avery has provided us with rich tracking this year. During the Spring and Summer surveys, we identified the tracks and sign of 14 species of mammals in addition to observing scores of reptiles, amphibians, birds and insects. You can read all about our Spring Survey here and our Summer Survey here. Through these surveys, we have also gotten to know some wonderful spots to track and we look forward to what we might find this fall. Here is the schedule for the day:

9:00am    Gathering at Tolzmann Park
9:30am    Tracking teams leave for the field
~3:00pm  Return from the field for sharing, mapping and debriefing
4:30pm    Complete

To support everyone's safety and well-being, we ask that you both wear a mask while we are together and practice physical distancing. We know this can be challenging at times, but feel it is a small sacrifice for the opportunity to get out on the landscape and track together again.

Bring your own lunches and snacks. Weather permitting, teams usually eat lunch in the field (without masks--but with a little extra distance).


Here are all the details:


Tolzmann Park

We will gather at Tolzmann Park in the City of Wyoming, which has ample parking and a picnic pavilion we should be able to use in case of rain. The park does not have a street address. The City of Wyoming website says it is at the corner of 274th Street and Finland Avenue. Google maps lists the park as being in East Bethel (it's not), but appears to have the location correct.



RSVP is Encouraged

Since we will not be at Cedar Creek, we do not need formal registration for this survey. And, it would be great to know if you are coming. To RSVP, either:

About Carlos Avery

The Carlos Avery Wildlife Management Area covers roughly 24,000 acres to the south and east of Cedar Creek. It is about 2/3 wetland and 1/3 upland and is managed primarily for Deer, Waterfowl and Turkey. Carlos Avery is near Cedar Creek, and offers similar habitat and diversity of species--but with no restrictions about where we can explore.

Interior roads at Carlos Avery are now open to motor vehicle traffic, and there are parking areas located throughout the property. You can download a PDF map that shows parking locations here.


Hazards, Considerations & Conditions on the Ground

Carlos Avery has minimal facilities. There are no lavatories, benches or shelters in the areas we will be tracking.

Carlos Avery is open to hunting. Archery season for deer and firearm season for a number of waterfowl and game birds will be open.

Ticks are still out and Anoka county is considered high-risk areas for tick-born diseases. Please come prepared and plan to do a thorough tick-check when you get home. Most experts now recommend permethrin treated clothing and a DEET based insect repellent, in addition to daily tick-checks. For more information on protecting yourself from Lyme disease and other tick-born illnesses check out this page from the Minnesota Department of Health.

It has been half-a-year since we began making large adjustments to our lives in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. In that time, we have learned that outdoor transmission of the novel coronavirus is extremely rare, as discussed in these articles from the New York Times and Washington Post. Meanwhile, masks are proving to be effective in reducing transmission. With this growing understanding of potential risks, we believe it is safe to resume small outdoor gatherings such as tracking club. These gatherings allow for easy spatial distancing and offer connection to people and to nature in one of the safest ways possible. But we still want to take reasonable precautions and look out for eachother's well-being. Please wear a mask and practice physical distancing.


iNaturalist

As most of you know, we use iNaturalist as a tool for recording and sharing our observations. This platform will be even more valuable for surveys where we are practicing physical distancing, making it easier for us to share and discuss what we see. If you do not already have an iNaturalist account, you can get one here.

Here are a few tips for documenting what you and your team finds:
  • When we track, we use clues at multiple spatial scales to help us identify and interpret what we find. Make sure to document multiple scales. A good observation of tracks will include multiple, clear, in-focus photographs of:
    • Individual tracks with a ruler for scale
    • Groups of tracks, showing enough to clearly interpret the track pattern.
    • Context photos showing the habitat and how the animal is using that habitat
    • For an excellent example of documenting tracks, see this Facebook post by German naturalist Simone Roters.
    • These examples of bobcat, toad and chipmunk tracks on iNaturalist show how to document tracks and trails--but remember to add habitat shots as well.
  • When documenting sign, also take multiple, in-focus photographs of the sign at multiple scales, including the habitat. Context is often even more important for sign.
    • These examples of squirrel and mouse feeding sing on iNaturalist are great examples of how to document sign.
  • In addition to your photographs, include notes about your observation to help others interpret what they see in your photographs. You may want to include measurements of tracks and trail parameters or notes about behavior.
  • When photographing tracks, remember these basic tips:
    • Make sure the outline of the track is clearly visible. In full sunshine, you may need to shade the track. In flat light, you may need to side-light the track with a flashlight.
    • Try different exposures and lighting conditions. You can delete the poor photos later, once you see how things look on a full-sized screen.
    • Take photos straight down. Even a slight angle can distort features and apparent size.
    • Include a ruler. Even then, your hand won't be the same distance from your lens as the track, distorting the apparent size of the track.
    • Use popsicle sticks, sticks, or arrows in the dirt to help point out track patterns if tracks are small or faint in the frame.
  • Remember that you can take photographs with any camera and add them to iNaturalist once you are back home. I often take a placeholder observation on my phone and additional photos with a camera to show added detail.


Updates on Cedar Creek

As of mid-September, Cedar Creek remains open only to essential research activity. We had hoped that the research station would be able to resume volunteer programs like ours by the end of the summer--but it turns out that this is a really difficult time to be in charge of a university with tens-of-thousands of students returning to campus from all across the country. Sensibly, the University is taking a cautious approach to the start of fall semester, keeping classes online and minimizing other programming for a few weeks to see how everything goes. As real information comes in about the spread--or lack of spread--of COVID on campus, we will learn more about when various programs will get up and running at Cedar Creek.


RSVPs are encouraged.

Trailing Practice: Sun, Sep 20

posted Sep 15, 2020, 3:49 PM by Jonathan Poppele   [ updated Sep 15, 2020, 3:49 PM ]

Trailing practice returns to Reservoir Woods in Roseville again this month,
a 115 acre undeveloped park with a dense population of suburban deer. Join us as we practice following the trails of deer (and perhaps each other) with the goal of seeing the animal we are tracking. Last month, we followed the fresh trail of a doe and a fawn for over an hour--but never caught sight of them. Perhaps we will get a little closer this month.

We hope you can join us. Please wear a mask and plan to maintain spatial distancing of a bit over one deer's length. If we are successful, we may again be able to use actual deer to check this.

Please note the chance to Sunday this month, to allow us more time on Saturday for This is Not a One Day Evaluation.

Sunday, September 20
9:00 am - 12:00 pm

We will gather at the parking lot at the corner of Alta Vista Dr and Stuber Rd:  

Reservoir Woods Park
1901 Alta Vista Dr
Roseville, MN 55113



This is an all-weather event and we spend time off trail. There are no amenities at Reservoir Woods. No bathrooms, no drinking fountains. Please bring appropriate gear and dress for several hours outdoors in whatever weather we may have that day.

We will meet at 9:00 in the parking lot. We will head out on the trail shortly after 9:00 and return to the parking lot by 12:00 pm. If you need to reach us the day of the outing, please call Kirsten's cell phone at 651-785-4650. Please note that once we are trailing, our phones will be on vibrate and we could easily miss an incoming call.

RSVPs are encouraged, but not required.

This is Not a One-Day Evaluation: Sat, Sep 19

posted Sep 15, 2020, 3:48 PM by Jonathan Poppele   [ updated Sep 16, 2020, 12:46 PM ]

Due to travel restrictions, we have postponed our fall Track and Sign Evaluation with Marcus Reynerson until next year. With the eval postponed, we are running "This is Not a One-Day Evaluation" in it's place.

Grab your favorite face covering and join us at Ft Snelling State Park this Saturday, September 19, for an outing in the model and spirit of a CyberTracker Evaluation. This is a great opportunity to learn about the evaluation process and to help prepare for the evaluations we plan to host next year. If you are not familiar with the CyberTracker evaluation, you can read all about it here. As with standard CyberTracker Evaluations, no prior training is required to participate in this club event.

Since This is Not a One-Day Evaluation, we will be in the field longer than a typical tracking club. Here is the schedule:

We will gather outside the Ft Snelling Visitor Center at 9:00am
We will spend the majority of the day in the field, eating lunch while out on trail
We plan to wrap up at approximately 4:30pm

One-Day CyberTracker evaluations are composed entirely of 1-point questions. Since This is Not a One-Day Evaluation, questions will include a mixture of difficulty, roughly comparable to 1-point, 2-point and 3-point questions. At the end of the day, we will go through the CyberTracker scoring system and give you a chance to calculate a mock "score" of your own.

Finally, since This is Not a One-Day Evaluation we are not limited to just 10 participants, and registration is not required. That said, it will help to know if you are coming. To RSVP, either:


What to Bring

  • A notebook and pencil
  • Water, snacks and lunch for a full day in the field
  • Bug repellent and sun protection, as needed
  • And, as with all Tracking Club gatherings, please wear a mask and plan to practice physical distancing as much as feasible.


I hope you can join us. And remember, This is Not a One-Day Evaluation.

August Tracking Club: This is Not a Test Prep

posted Aug 10, 2020, 11:45 AM by Jonathan Poppele   [ updated Aug 10, 2020, 7:02 PM by The Center for Mind-Body Oneness ]

From the beginning of Minnesota's lockdown, we have been encouraging people to get outside on their own or with members of their household. Five months later, there is growing evidence that outdoor transmission of the novel coronavirus is extremely rare, as discussed in these articles from the New York Times and Washington Post. Meanwhile, masks are proving to be effective in reducing transmission. With this growing understanding of potential risks, we believe it is safe to resume small outdoor gatherings such as tracking club. These gatherings allow for easy spatial distancing and offer connection to people and to nature in one of the safest ways possible.

Meanwhile, due to travel restrictions, we have postponed our fall Track and Sign Evaluation with Marcus Reynerson until next year. In it's place, next months' tracking club Will Not be a One Day Evaluation. So, we had better Not Do some Test Prep! Come join us at Ft Snelling State Park as we explore track and sign, ask each other challenging questions, and generally have a great time Not Preparing for an Eval. Please note that access to Ft. Snelling is complicated by construction on Hwy 5.

Sunday, August 16
9:00am - 1:00pm

We will gather outside the Ft. Snelling State Park visitor center:

Ft. Snelling State Park
101 Snelling Lake Rd
West St Paul, MN 55111


This is an all-weather event and we spend time off trail. Please bring appropriate footwear and dress for several hours outdoors in whatever weather we may have that day.

We will gather outside at 9:00 in between the parking lot and the Visitor Center. We will head out on the trail about 9:20 and return to the visitor center about noon to wrap-up and share stories. If you need to reach us the day of the outing, please call Jon's cell phone at 612-388-4700.

Important Notes

Road construction on Highway 5 complicates travel to Ft. Snelling. West bound Hwy 5 is closed between 34th St and (roughly) Davern St, including the bridge over the Mississippi. Traveling from the west, you will need to exit and 34th St and follow it around Ft Snelling National Cemetery as it becomes Post Road, passes the main airport runways, and crosses back over Hwy 5 to enter the park. Mind the posted speed limit, there is a heavy speed patrol presence along this route.

You need a State Park pass to drive to the Visitor Center, but you can park for free at the Historic Fort Snelling visitor center. It is about a half-mile walk past the historic fort and down the hill to get to the State Park visitor center. The Historic Fort parking is located at 200 Tower Ave, St Paul, MN 55111.

You can also avoid both of these issues by coming by bicycle.

RSVPs are encouraged, but not required.

Trailing Practice: Sat, Aug 15

posted Aug 10, 2020, 8:23 AM by Jonathan Poppele   [ updated Aug 10, 2020, 12:07 PM ]

Trailing practice returns to Reservoir Woods in Roseville again this month. Last month, we observed three deer as they wandered across the landscape, including this buck in velvet. None were wearing masks, but there is currently no evidence of COVID-19 transmission between deer and humans. Additionally, there is increasing evidence
that transmission of the novel coronavirus is rare outdoors even between people, as shared in these articles in the New York Times and Washington Post. Meanwhile, masks are proving to be effective in reducing transmission.

With all this in mind, please come join us for the return of group trailing practice. Please wear a mask and plan to maintain spatial distancing of a bit over one deer's length. If we are successful, we may again be able to use actual deer to check this.

Tracking Club: Foraging for Berries: Sun, Jul 26

posted Jul 21, 2020, 3:51 PM by Jonathan Poppele   [ updated Jul 21, 2020, 3:52 PM ]

Tracking Club returns this weekend with something a little bit different--foraging berries.

Sunday, July 26
9:00 - 1:00

Minnesota Valley National Wildlife Refuge Visitor Center
3815 American Blvd E
Bloomington, MN 55425


From the beginning of Minnesota's lockdown, we have been encouraging people to get outside on their own or with members of their household. Four months later, there is growing evidence that outdoor transmission of the novel coronavirus is extremely rare, as discussed in these articles from the New York Times and Washington Post. Meanwhile, masks are proving to be effective in reducing transmission. With this growing understanding of potential risks, we believe it is safe to resume small outdoor gatherings such as tracking club. These gatherings allow for easy spatial distancing and offer connection to people and to nature in one of the safest ways possible.

With all the challenges we are facing these days, we thought it would be lovely to get back to tracking club by gather together to look for fresh berries to enjoy. While we are at it, we might investigate insect sign on plants, try our had at identifying berry seeds in scat we may find, and otherwise act like a group of trackers out for a walk in the woods.

We hope you can join us.


This is an all-weather event and we spend time off trail. Please bring appropriate footwear and dress for several hours outdoors in whatever weather we may have that day. Please also take appropriate precautions for biting insects and ticks. Finally, bring something to collect berries. We don't know what we will find, but Refuge rules allow each person to collect up to one gallon for personal consumption.

We will gather at 9:00 outside of the Refuge Visitor Center. We will head out onto Hillside and Long Meadow Lake trails 9:20 and will likely return to the Visitor Center when we are full :) If you need to reach us the day of the outing, please call Jon's cellphone: 612-388-4700.

RSVPs are encouraged, but not required.

June Tracking Club: Hunting for Tracks & Sign

posted Jun 9, 2020, 6:28 PM by Jonathan Poppele   [ updated Jun 9, 2020, 6:39 PM ]

This month, I invite you to head out on a scavenger hunt for tracks & sign. This game is designed to help us take time with tracks and sign we might not normally or pay much attention to. Most items on the list represent broad categories and I invite you to interpret them in any way that will help you enjoy your time in the field and stretch yourself as a tracker.

The game is to find an example of each item and to identify it as specifically as possible. Some items are common and easy to locate, others much less so. A few are exceptionally rare or challenging to find. For purposes of the game, use each sign or set of tracks only once. If you find the half-understep walking trail of a snapping turtle, for example, count it either as an example of a Walk or as an example of a Testudines, but not both.

As with our previous "Socially Distanced" Tracking Clubs, this is a chance to explore some of your favorite places and share what you find with our group. The scavenger hunt also overlaps with the Carlos Avery Wildlife Survey, so bring your checklist for that as well. Here are the details:
  • Between now and June 21, get out to a secluded natural area and look for examples of the tracks and sign on this Scavenger Hunt list.
  • Gather around the digital campfire on Sunday afternoon for Stories of the Day. 
    • Zoom video conference, "Story of the Day: Hunting for Tracks & Sign"
    • Sunday, June 21, 4:00pm
    • Register in advance with this link
      After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the meeting.

Carlos Avery Summer Survey: June 13 & 14

posted May 11, 2020, 12:21 PM by Jonathan Poppele   [ updated May 11, 2020, 12:23 PM ]

It's time for the Cedar Creek Carlos Avery Wildlife Survey!


Cedar Creek Ecosystem Science Reserve is currently closed to all public programs and non-essential research activity. But Carlos Avery Wildlife Management Area is just down the road, and a great location for a socially distanced alternative to our Cedar Creek Summer Survey. So I invite you to take part in our latest asynchronous tracking club event, the Carlos Avery Wildlife Survey. Here is a quick overview:


Here are all the details:


Carlos Avery: Where To Go

The Carlos Avery Wildlife Management Area covers about 24,000 acres to the south and east of Cedar Creek. It is about 2/3 wetland and 1/3 upland and is managed primarily for Deer, Waterfowl and Turkey.

Interior roads at Carlos Avery are now open to motor vehicle traffic, and there are parking areas located throughout the property. You can download a PDF map that shows parking locations here.

Many of the roads at Carlos Avery have sections of loose dirt or sand that capture clear tracks. Many are also heavily used by people and dogs. Only a few areas seem to reliably offer clear tracks of wild animals. You may have more success recording sign. Check out the observations from our Spring Survey to get an idea of where you might go to see various types of tracks and sign.


Hazards, Considerations & Conditions on the Ground

Ticks are out and Anoka county is considered high-risk areas for tick-born diseases. Please come prepared and plan to do a thorough tick-check when you get home. Most experts now recommend permethrin treated clothing and a DEET based insect repellent, in addition to daily tick-checks. For more information on protecting yourself from Lyme disease and other tick-born illnesses check out this page from the Minnesota Department of Health.

Carlos Avery is considered a prime spot for birding. You may want to bring binoculars and think about how to share bird observations on iNaturalist. Maybe time to try digiscoping?



iNaturalist (please read this part)

As most of you know, we use iNaturalist as a tool for recording and sharing our observations. This platform will be even more valuable for this survey as we get out on our own and make individual observations. If you do not already have an iNaturalist account, you can get one here.

For this survey, our iNaturalist observations are not only a record of what we find, they are also the way we will be able to discuss what we see and get others help with identification and interpretation. Because of this, we will want to document our findings more thoroughly than we may be used to. Here are a few tips:

  • When we track, we use clues at multiple spatial scales to help us identify and interpret what we find. Make sure to document multiple scales. A good observation of tracks will include multiple, clear, in-focus photographs of:
    • Individual tracks with a ruler for scale
    • Groups of tracks, showing enough to clearly interpret the track pattern.
    • Context photos showing the habitat and how the animal is using that habitat
    • For an excellent example of documenting tracks, see this Facebook post by German naturalist Simone Roters.
    • These examples of bobcat, toad and chipmunk tracks on iNaturalist show how to document tracks and trails--but remember to add habitat shots as well.
  • When documenting sign, also take multiple, in-focus photographs of the sign at multiple scales, including the habitat. Context is often even more important for sign.
    • These examples of squirrel and mouse feeding sing on iNaturalist are great examples of how to document sign.
  • In addition to your photographs, include notes about your observation to help others interpret what they see in your photographs. You may want to include measurements of tracks and trail parameters or notes about behavior.
  • When photographing tracks, remember these basic tips:
    • Make sure the outline of the track is clearly visible. In full sunshine, you may need to shade the track. In flat light, you may need to side-light the track with a flashlight.
    • Try different exposures and lighting conditions. You can delete the poor photos later, once you see how things look on a full-sized screen.
    • Take photos straight down. Even a slight angle can distort features and apparent size.
    • Include a ruler. Even then, your hand won't be the same distance from your lens as the track, distorting the apparent size of the track.
    • Use popsicle sticks, sticks, or arrows in the dirt to help point out track patterns if tracks are small or faint in the frame.
  • Remember that you can take photographs with any camera and add them to iNaturalist once you are back home. I often take a placeholder observation on my phone and additional photos with a camera to show added detail.


Story-of-the-Day on Zoom

At the end of the weekend, you are invited to join us on a Zoom video conference to share your story of the day, ask and answer questions, and see what others found. We will gather on Sunday afternoon, so everyone will have time to do some of their own research, upload observations, and even get feedback from others on iNaturalists. Team leads will be reviewing observations on Saturday evening and Sunday afternoon. Here are all the details on the gathering:

Sunday, June 14, 4:00 PM

We recommend registering for the gathering in advance. To register, follow this link.

After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the meeting.




This is Not an Evaluation: May 23-24

posted May 11, 2020, 12:03 PM by Jonathan Poppele   [ updated May 18, 2020, 3:30 PM ]

Over Memorial Day Weekend, we were scheduled to host Minnesota's first ever Track & Sign Specialist Evaluation. With the eval postponed, we are running "This is Not an Evaluation" in it's place. Here is how it will work:

This is Not an Evaluation Overview

  • Over Memorial Day Weekend, questions will be set up in and around Ft. Snelling State Park in the style of a Track & Sign Evaluation.
  • A Google Form with photographs of the questions will be posted to the blog by early Saturday morning.
  • Everyone who registers here for the debrief will receive an email with a direct link to the This is Not an Evaluation Form.
  • Answer the questions by 2:00pm on Sunday, May 24.
  • Gather for a debrief on Zoom at 4:00pm on Sunday, May 24.

These are Not Evaluation Questions

  • The questions will be set up in the style of a Track & Sign evaluation. In the spirit of a Specialist Evaluation, most will be similar to "3-point" CyberTracker questions.
  • The number of questions will depend on conditions on the ground, but will likely be close to 30--similar to the number on a one-day evaluation.
  • I will strive to document each question so all the information you need to answer the question is in the photos. So you can participate in This is Not an Evaluation entirely online.
  • The questions will be marked in the field with circles, flags and/or popsicle sticks in the day or two before This is Not an Evaluation. The locations of the "Stations" will be posted with the form--but may get disturbed after they are marked.
  • You will be able to fill out answers on the survey. Please submit your answers by 2:00pm on Sunday, May 24.
  • You may participate in any you wish. If you want to practice as a mock eval, follow these guidelines:
    • Answer on your own without consulting guidebooks or taking measurements.
    • Do not use the "back" button on the form. Once you have "left" a "station," consider your answers final.
    • At the end, you can request to receive Not an Evaluation Score, based on the CyberTracker scoring system, during the debrief.

This is Not an Evaluation Debrief

  • We will gather on Zoom at 4:00pm on Sunday, May 24, to debrief.
  • You must register in advance for this Zoom gathering.
  • If you register before the weekend, you will receive reminder emails, and a direct link to the Google Form.
  • Register using this link
