Marty Miller and Jonathan Poppele invite you to join us for our next Tracking Excursion at the Minnesota Valley National Wildlife Refuge:

Sunday, August 17
9:00am - 12:00pm

We will gather at the Refuge visitor center:

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

The waters of the Minnesota River have receded leaving lots of sign. Last month, we tracked otters across Long Meadow Lake Trail. We look forward to what this month's excursion brings! Come join us as we explore the floodplain in Bloomington.

Note: Fort Snellin
g State Park, or usual location for tracking, is currently closed due to flooding.

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 outside the Visitor Center. We will head out on the trail by about 9:20. If need to reach us the day of the outing, please call Jon's cell phone at 612-388-4700.

RSVPs are encouraged, but not required.
