Come join us for our next Tracking Excursion at Ft. Snelling State Park:

Sunday, August 16
9:00am - 12:00pm

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

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


The tracker Tom Brown said that "an animal is an instrument played by the landscape." Landscapes too are played by us animals. Come learn how the two make music together. This Sunday we will focus on trailing, in small teams and in groups, asking "where this animal came from and where is it going?"

You are invited to bring a bag lunch and beverage as we will have an opportunity to regroup before sharing our stories and insights from the morning's sessions. This is an all-weather event. Be prepared for several hours outdoors.

We will gather at 9:00 in the fireplace room in the Visitor Center. We will head out on the trail about 10:15. If you need to reach us the day of the outing, please call Jon's cell phone at 612-388-4700.

Note that 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

RSVPs are encouraged, but not required.
