We are delighted to let you know that, with the support of Governor Dayton and the Legislature, Minnesota’s parks and trails will be receiving over $53 million through this year’s bonding bill. This critical funding includes:
-$17.7 million for trail projects across the state, many of which have been delayed for years;
-$4 million for metropolitan regional parks and $16.5 million for other metro park and trail projects;
-$14 million for Lake Vermillion State Park; and
-$700,000 for other projects across the state and in Greater Minnesota.
Key to this success was the support of so many of YOU who contacted your legislators to urge them to support our extraordinary parks and trails. Thank you again for taking action!
