March Tracking Club: Signs of Spring: Sun Mar 15

Come join us for our next Tracking Club at Ft. Snelling State Park:

Sunday, March 15
9:00am - 1:00pm

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 sun is climbing higher in the sky, the snow is melting, and the Spring Equinox is just around the corner. How are the animals shifting their behavior as warm weather returns? Have the woodchuck come out of hibernation? Are the deer finding early spring growth to feed on?
We will head out onto the landscape and look for signs of spring.

This is an all-weather event and we spend time off trail. Please bring appropriate footwear and dress for several hours outdoors in whatever weather we may have that day.

We will gather at 9:00 in the fireplace room in the Visitor Center. We will head out on the trail about 9:20 and return to the visitor center about noon to wrap-up and share stories. 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.
