In less than two weeks, the Minnesota Legislature will reconvene, and although the second half of the biennium is shorter, it will likely be another busy session. Because it is not a budget year, the Legislature will be focused primarily on the bonding bill and policy issues. For GMPT, we have several priorities for 2024. We would like to see more funding for the DNR’s local park and trails grant programs and will be pushing for the inclusion of such funds in the bonding bill.
Our next GMPT forum is coming up at 11 a.m. on Thursday, Dec. 2. Hear from Darcie Vandegrift of the Met Council about their study on building effective connections between youth and the outdoors. While their work was specific to the metro area’s regional park system – let’s take this time to discuss applicability to Greater Minnesota!
Here are the forum details:
