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

Sunday, January 18
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

The native Dakota people referred to the first moon of the year as the Hard Moon (Wiotehika wi). We will be out this weekend before the new moon to read tracks and observe signs of wildlife behavior in the heart of winter.

Dress warm!
This is an all-weather event and we will spend most of our time outdoors. 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.

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 Marty's cell phone at 612-600-0668.

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.
