Trailing Practice Returns: Sat, Jul 25

Trailing practice returns to Reservior Woods in Roseville. The deer are officially out of quarantine. Most are refusing to wear masks, but there is currently no evidence of COVID-19 transmission between deer and humans. Additinally, there is increasing evidence that transmission of the novel coronavirus is rare outdoors even between people, as shared in these articles in the New York Times and Washington Post. Meanwhile, masks are proving to be effective in reducing transmission.

With all this in mind, please come join us for the return of group trailing practice. Please wear a mask and plan to maintain spatial distancing of a bit over one deer's length. If we are successful, we may be able to use actual deer to check this.


Join us as we practice following the trails of deer (and perhaps each other) with the goal of seeing the animal we are tracking. We will return to one of our favorite trailing spots in the cities, Reservoir Woods in Roseville, a 115 acre undeveloped park with a dense population of suburban deer.  

Saturday, July 25 
9:00 am - 12:00 pm

We will gather at the parking lot at the corner of Alta Vista Dr and Stuber Rd:  

Reservoir Woods Park
1901 Alta Vista Dr
Roseville, MN 55113

This is an all-weather event and we spend time off trail. There are no amenities at Reservoir Woods. No bathrooms, no drinking fountains. Please bring appropriate gear and dress for several hours outdoors in whatever weather we may have that day.

We will meet at 9:00 in the parking lot. We will head out on the trail shortly after 9:00 and return to the parking lot by 12:00 pm. If you need to reach us the day of the outing, please call Kirsten's cell phone at 651-785-4650. Please note that once we are trailing, our phones will be on vibrate and we could easily miss an incoming call.

RSVPs are encouraged, but not required.
