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

Sunday, February 22
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

Please join us for wildlife tracking on and around Pike Island. We have just gotten some fresh snow, and with luck will get a bit more before the event. We will follow the prints in the snow to explore the lives of the furred and feathered residents during the "moon when the trees crack from the cold" (Dakota: cannapopa wi).

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 9:20. 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.
