Sunday, February 21
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
This month we will practice understanding tracking from a bird's eye view by mapping animal sign and tracks that we encounter in the field. We will also continue to hone our track and gait identification skills in preparation for our April Cybertracker Evaluation. (Please contact us if you are interested in this day-long field challenge and learning opportunity.)
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.
We will gather at 9:00 in the fireplace room in the Visitor Center. We will head out on the trail about 9:20 and return to the visitor center about noon for a brief mapping exercise and wrap-up session. 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.
