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

Sunday, November 19
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

We're most familiar with watching birds fly through the air, but they leave tracks on the ground as well. At this month's tracking club, we'll focus in on identifying and interpreting tracks and sign of some common Minnesota birds. In addition to identification, we'll work on drawing connections to the life history and ecology of the species we encounter.  

We will gather at 9:00 in the Visitor Center. We will head out on the trail about 9:20 and return to the visitor center about noon for wrap-up. If you need to reach us the day of the outing, please call Donnie's cell phone at 952-334-5471. Please note that cell reception is poor in much of the park.

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.
