Let's hike Tamarack Nature Center

This is a beautiful park named for its abundant "tamarack" trees, which look like pines but are really softer, younger forest growth near marshes and wetlands. We'll hike about 2 miles of looped trails, give or take. I've only visited the park a couple of times, so bring your sense of adventure while we navigate the maps. They go in a circle so you can't get lost. Bring your water bottle(s), a snack and wear comfortable shoes. We will keep a moderate pace, hike with group etiquette of no one going out-of-sight of the main group.

No need to RSVP "no," but please RSVP "yes" responsibly and update later if you are unable to come.  No-shows will be noted and may lose RSVP privileges in the future.

It's in White Bear Township, easy to find.  Here's a map:

    Hey all

    Yippee! Weather.com says "mostly cloudy" this afternoon. Hope to see you at the hike!

    There is a fairly low 30 % chance of rain, "scattered" thundershowers. Hopefully they will miss us.

    Hey all,
    This time of year if it rains it's likely to be a thunder storm and over in a few minutes. I will check my email at 11:00 or so but after that I will be on the road. With a rain jacket.

    Just checked weather forecast -- stay tuned tomorrow, when rain is expected to clear up by afternoon, isolated thundershowers after that.

    I sent a reminder email today with my phone number included. Please note that if it is raining, it will be canceled. Doublecheck your email Sat. a.m.

    I am on the waiting list. Note that I will not have access to the Inernet after 4:00 p.m. on Friday. So if a cancellation exists prior to that time, I would be most appreciative of your earliest notification of a cancelation. Otherwise, I look forward to another event with the group.
    Thank You!!

      Hi, Nan. The walk will be canceled IF it is raining. If in doubt, call Sat. morning. My cell phone number was included in an email sent to all signed up. (Unfortunately I can't know Friday if it will rain for sure on Saturday). Thanks.
