Guided Phenology Tour at Dodge Nature Center (West St. Paul) 

Saturday, March 26 • 10:30 a.m. - 1 pm

Cost: $10  |  Limited to 35 Attendees - Purchase your ticket HERE

It has been a long time since "Wild Ones" from across the state have gathered! So, let's get together to reconnect, share a hot beverage, take a wonderful phenology hike through Dodge Nature Center's property in West St. Paul and, most of all...have fun! 

Pete Cleary, director of environmental education, will be our guide:

"Egrets blanketed in snow or red-winged blackbirds singing? Maple trees dripping sap or opening flowers? Geese resting on the ice or fighting for nesting territory? The end of March is always a tossup when it comes to the markers that herald the arrival of spring. We’ll explore Dodge to look and listen for ourselves."

Our gathering will begin at 10:30 in the recently restored Olivia Irvine Dodge Library and History Center. We'll have a half hour to mingle, reconnect, and introduce ourselves until Pete begins his tour at 11.a.m. Over the pandemic, naturalists have been taking a deeper look into the phenology at the Dodge property and Pete will share his observations with us as he guides us through the Center's woodlands, wetlands, and restored prairie.

After our 60-90 minute tour, we will reconvene at the Library for light refreshments and more conversation. We have a lot to catch up on. We hope to see you soon!

Note: this event is limited to 35 attendees so please be sure to sign up soon! This event is being hosted by Wild Ones Twin Cities.
