Trailing Practice: Sun, Oct 25

posted Oct 9, 2020, 8:17 AM by Jonathan Poppele   [ updated Oct 9, 2020, 8:18 AM ]
Trailing practice returns to Reservoir Woods in Roseville again 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. Last month, we observed a bachelor herd of bucks chewing their cud before finding and following the fresh trail of a doe. Join us to see what we can spot this time out.

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.

Please note the date change and Sunday schedule this month, to accommodate the Northeast Wildlife Trackers Conference the previous weekend.

Sunday, October 25
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.
