The Bemidji State University chapter of the Wildlife Society is hosting its second Hobson Forest Wildlife Tracking Survey at the end of February. The survey is organized by Kim Shelton, president of the BSU Wildlife Society and Minnesota's first certified Track & Sign Professional. The first Hobson Forest survey on December 7, 2019, was a wonderful day in the field. BSU students led by certified trackers identified the tracks and trails of over 20 species, including black bear, fisher and five different species of canine. You can see what the teams found on the Hobson Forest iNaturailst project page.

The survey will take place on Saturday, February 29. Leap-Day 2020.

A group from the Twin Cities will be heading up to join the local trackers and BSU students for the February survey. Kim has offered to host our group--as long as we don't mind space on a sofa. We will carpool up on Friday, February 28, and head back on the evening of February 29 after the survey.

If you would like to take part in the survey, please let us know. If you are in the Bemidji area, email Kim Shelton. If you are coming from near the Twin Cities and would like to be part of our carpool, please Contact Us or email Jonathan Poppele.
