Join us for another urban to wild excursion in the Twin Cities back yard.

For help, visit metro transit’s website, or consult the leader. Details: We are rebooking the popular event that was cancelled last spring due to flooding!
The outing consists of both a walk to explore the best route to take on foot from the station to the park, and the park program on maple syrup making. We’ll first walk through an urban area to the historic fort, and then down into the park to the visitors center, distance about 1 mile. Total walking distance to and fro, including in the park: 2-3 miles. We should have time at the visitors center to snack or lunch (not provided), and watch the birds before the program begins at 1pm.
