Marty Miller and Jonathan Poppele invite you to join us for our next Tracking Excursion at Ft. Snelling State Park:

Saturday, February 22
9:00am - 12:00pm 

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

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

Jon and Marty will facilitate an adventurous exploration of Pike Island, at the confluence of the Minnesota and Mississippi rivers. In our recent expeditions, we have followed deer trails across the island; tasted icicles of maple sap; studied the wing marks of songbirds; and found deer tracks so fresh, they still had hooves in them.

Please come join us for this morning of nature connection. You are invited to bring a bag lunch and beverage as we will have 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 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

RSVPs are encouraged, but not required.
