Minnesota's Legacy

Parks and Trails Legacy Advisory Committee Membership Application

The Coordinating Partners of the Parks and Trails Legacy Fund, which includes the Metropolitan Council, the Greater Minnesota Regional Parks and Trails Commission, and the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources, are seeking qualified applicants to serve on the Parks and Trails Legacy Advisory Committee. The mission of the Parks and Trails Legacy Advisory Committee is to “champion the 25-year Parks and Trails Legacy Plan by providing recommendations to enhance promotion, coordination, and accountability throughout implementation of the plan.”

Among the expertise and perspectives desired for committee members are backgrounds in youth programs, natural resource and outdoor skills building education, resource management, marketing, new technology, tourism, and business. Terms are two years with the option of being reappointed for a maximum of three terms. The committee meets every two months around the state, with an option to attend remotely. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the committee is currently hosting remote meetings only. Meetings have historically included tours of state and regional parks and trails and provided members with the opportunities to learn first-hand about projects and programs supported by the Parks and Trails Legacy Fund.
