June Tracking Club: Sign O' The Times

Come join us for our next Tracking Excursion at Cleary Lake Regional Park Reserve in Prior Lake 

Sunday, June 16  
9:00am - 1:00pm

We will gather at the Cleary Lake visitor center:

Cleary Lake Visitor Center
18106 Texas Ave
Prior Lake, MN 55372

With the Minnesota River still above flood stage, and Ft. Snelling State Park still closed, we will head down to the south suburbs to look for animal sign at Cleary Lake Regional Park. The park encompasses a bit over 1,200 acres of lake, forest, wetland and old fields. There may not be many good "track traps" in the park, so we will focus on sign.

This is an all-weather event and we spend time off trail in potentially wet conditions. Please bring appropriate footwear and dress for several hours outdoors in whatever weather we may have that day. Please also take precautions for ticks. The DNR advises using permethrin treated clothing as well as checking for ticks after being in the field.

We will gather at 9:00 the Visitor Center. We will head out on the trail by about 9:20 and return to the Visitor Center before 1:00pm to wrap up. If you need to reach us the day of the outing, please call Jon's cell phone at 612-388-4700. Note that cell reception may be spotty in the park.

RSVPs are encouraged, but not required.
