Outdoor events celebrate 10th anniversary of Legacy Amendment


A series of events celebrating the 10-year anniversary of the passage of the Clean Water, Land and Legacy Amendment will take place throughout Minnesota in 2018.

"The passage of the Legacy Amendment was a game-changer for organizations working to support Minnesota's outstanding system of parks and trails," said Erika Rivers, director of the Department of Natural Resources Parks and Trails Division. "At these events, we will not only highlight what has been accomplished over the past decade with Legacy funding but, perhaps even more important, we will gather input from people throughout the state—adults and kids alike—to help shape priorities moving forward."

A "Future Parks and Trails Legacy Celebration" event will take place from 1-4 p.m. Saturday, June 2 at Itasca State Park.

Other participating cities are St. Joseph, Marshall, Bloomington, Rochester, Fergus Falls and Duluth.
