Join Laramie Audubon Society on a Snow Tracking Field Trip this Sunday. Bring your snowshoes or cross-country skis and wear your layered winter clothing. Gary Beauvais, Director of the Wyoming Natural Diversity Database, will lead us on a trek through the snow at Chimney Park (USFS). Gary will show us various tracks in the snow and help us learn to identify who made the tracks. This is a great way to enjoy the outdoors on a winter morning.
Meet at 8am at Coal Creek Coffee (downtown Laramie) on Sunday, March 1, to caffeinate and carpool. We will drive out to Chimney Park Trailhead in the US Forest, 32 miles southwest of Laramie on Hwy 230. Bring snacks, maybe a lunch, and water. Be sure to dress for the weather. We usually return to Laramie around 1pm.
There is a $5 fee per vehicle at the trailhead unless you have an annual pass. Be sure to display your pass (if you have one) on your dashboard.
If you have any questions, you may call Vicki Henry at 307-760-9518.
