***Change of Location! Now meeting at Ft. Snelling State Park***

Marty Miller and Jonathan Poppele welcome both returning trackers and new members to our next wildlife tracking event:

Sunday, December 8 
9:00am - 12:00pm 

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

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

Jon and Marty will facilitate a deeper and richer awareness of tracks, sign, and connection with wildlife along the Minnesota and Mississippi rivers. We will have a series of tracking stations and opportunities to ask questions and deepen our understanding of track and sign, gaits, and appreciation for how animals think and move through a landscape.

Come join us for a morning of nature connection. You are invited to bring a bag lunch and beverage as we will have a an opportunity to regroup before sharing our stories and insights from the morning's sessions. This is an all-weather event. Dress warm and be prepared for a short hike and several hours outdoors.

We will gather at 9:00 in the fireplace room in the Visitor Center. We will head out on the trail about 9:20. If need to reach us the day of the outing, please call Jon's cell phone at 612-388-4700.

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
