Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

In 2011 expand the program to up to 70 special programs to attract new visitors to Minnesota State Parks and Trails and provide programming opportunities at parks typically without interpretive staff.

Measurable Outcome(s)

In 2011 70 programs were scheduled statewide; however due to the state government shutdown only 48 of these programs actually took place (68% of our initial goal) for a total attendance of 2 467 people.

Project Overview

The special program series Outdoors EXTRA is designed to offer programs at Minnesota state parks and trails with less visitation. Programs are led by guest presenters and are often beyond the skill level of existing staff. Examples of programs are live music; live animal programs, such as an eagle program; or rock climbing programs.
