Tracking Club: Dog Days of August

Come join us for our next Tracking Excursion: 

Sunday, August 18 
9:00am - 1:00pm 

Minnehaha Dog Park 
5399 Minnehaha Park Dr S 
Minneapolis, MN 55417 

Domestic dogs present a challenge to trackers. The tremendous variety of dog breeds makes generalizations about dog tracks difficult. Individual dogs may have tracks smaller than those of a kit fox, or larger than those of a grey wolf. Some dogs leave round, cat-like tracks, others leave prints very similar to coyote. In recent years, Linda Bittle has been helping the tracking community build our understanding of domestic dog tracks. This month, we will make a visit to the Minnehaha Off-Leash Dog Park to study canine prints and help contribute to Linda Bittle's body of research.

***Please note that you need a Minneapolis city permit to bring your dog with you to the park***
  **Also note that all nearby parking is metered**

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

We will gather at 9:00 at the northern entrance to the dog park and head down toward the river shortly afterwards. We will wrap up and return to the park entrance before 1:00pm. If you 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.
