May Tracking Club: Leafed Out not Left Out

In the past couple of weeks, the trees around the metro area have leafed out, and the canopy has filled in for the season. As we continue to practice Social Distancing to support the health and well being of our communities, there is no need to be left out of the opportunity to share the beauty of this time of year. Let's get out and explore close to home and share what we are seeing at our favorite, secluded spots.

Over the coming days, we invite you to join us for our second "Socially Distanced" Tracking Club. Once again, we invite you to bring the group to one of your favorite places and share what you are observing. Here's the plan:
  • Over the next few days, get out to a secluded natural area for some socially distanced "dirt time." Look for tracks, sign, nesting birds, emerging insects, or whatever your heart desires.
  • Gather around the digital campfire on Sunday afternoon for Stories of the Day. 
    • Zoom video conference, "Story of the Day: Leafed Out not Left Out"
    • Sunday, May 17, 4:00pm
    • Register in advance with this link
      After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the meeting.
