Accelerating State Trail Resource Management
This project will restore and manage native prairies and woodlands, including removal of invasive species along at least six percent of the developed miles of state trails
About the Issue
Resource management on state trails has been sporadic over the past several years because it was dependent on the use of infrequent project dollars. Legacy monies are the first stable funding for resource management on state trails, so it will take a little time to establish the infrastructure for an on-going program but it is anticipated that significant improvements in resource quality along state trail corridors will be achieved. The purpose of natural resource management on state trails is to help provide the maximum potential for the appreciation, conservation and enjoyment of significant scenic, historical, natural or cultural qualities along the trail (MS 86A.05 subd. 4).
