posted Nov 6, 2018, 12:39 PM by Minnesota Ki Society   [ updated Nov 6, 2018, 12:40 PM ]
Come join us for our next Tracking Excursion at Ft. Snelling State Park, followed by a Community Meeting: 

Sunday, November 18  
9:00am - 1:00pm 
(meeting 1:00~3:30)

We will gather at the Ft. Snelling State Park visitor center: 

Ft. Snelling State Park 
101 Snelling Lake Rd 
West St Paul, MN 55111

Join us for a half-day exploring the art of trailing as club members share from the recent Trailing Evaluation and Workshop with Kersey Lawrence and Lee Gutteridge. We will head out onto the landscape to follow trails and practice spotting deer tracks in leaf litter--like the one in the photo here :)

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 for a brief mapping exercise and wrap-up session. If you need to reach us the day of the outing, please call Jon's cell phone at 612-388-4700. Please note that cell reception is poor in much of the park.

Following Tracking Club, you are invited to join our community's "Village Builder's" group for a pot-luck lunch and conversation to reflect on the past year and begin creating the coming year and beyond.

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.
