Snow Tracking Field Trip at Chimney Park on Saturday morning, February 21

Join us on a Snow Tracking Field Trip this Saturday, February 21.  Bring your cross-country skis or snowshoes 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 8 am at Coal Creek Coffee 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, water and 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. If you have one, be sure to display your pass on your dashboard.

If you have any questions, you may call Vicki at 307-760-9518.
