Trailing Practice: Sun, Sep 20

posted Sep 15, 2020, 3:49 PM by Jonathan Poppele   [ updated Sep 15, 2020, 3:49 PM ]
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 followed the fresh trail of a doe and a fawn for over an hour--but never caught sight of them. Perhaps we will get a little closer this month.

We hope you can join us. 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 chance to Sunday this month, to allow us more time on Saturday for This is Not a One Day Evaluation.

Sunday, September 20
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.
