Tracking Club: Partial Print Identification

posted Aug 10, 2017, 9:52 AM by Jonathan Poppele   [ updated Sep 10, 2017, 8:21 AM ]
Come join us for Tracking Club at Ft. Snelling State Park:

Sunday, August 20
9:00am - 1:00pm

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

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

In the real world of wildlife tracking, animal tracks do not always present themselves as a clear and detailed print. Join us this month as we explore how to identify the track maker when we only have part of the whole. We will start with a discussion on some of the basics then move to one of my favorite places to practice partial print identification.

We will gather at 9:00 in the Visitor Center. We will head out on the trail about 9:20 and return to the visitor center about noon for wrap-up. If you need to reach us the day of the outing, please call Donnie's cell phone at 952-334-5471. Please note that cell reception is poor in much of the park.

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.
