Trailing Practice: Sat, May 15

posted May 7, 2021, 11:22 AM by Jonathan Poppele   [ updated May 7, 2021, 11:25 AM ]
Trailing practice returns to Reservoir Woods in Roseville this month,
a 115 acre undeveloped park with a dense population of suburban deer. Join us as we practice following the trails of deer (and perhaps each other) with the goal of seeing the animal we are tracking. The deer at Reservoir Woods are a little more shy than their kin at Ft. Snelling--but still used to having people around. We may get a glimpse of them, but they are unlikely to follow us around the park.

Please wear a mask and plan to maintain spatial distancing of a bit over one deer's length. If we are successful, we may again be able to use actual deer to check this.

Saturday, May 15
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.
