10th Anniversary Events
2018 marked 10 years of the passage of the Clean Water, Land and Legacy Amendment. In an effort to recognize the 10th Anniversary of this constitutional amendment the Parks and Trails Legacy Advisory Committee organized several regional public events to celebrate, educate and listen to Minnesota’s citizens. Each event was filled with family-friendly activities aiming to engage and inspire people from across the community to get involved with their parks and trails, and to learn about the opportunities the Legacy Amendment offers.
During these events, staff from the ten Metropolitan Regional Parks System’s implementing agencies, the Metropolitan Council, the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources, and the Greater Minnesota Regional Parks and Trails Commission gathered ideas and perspectives from attendees on Legacy efforts thus far to help shape priorities moving forward.
