Partner Opportunities

We work very closely with a number of friends groups. This can be as simple as coordinating a site visit or in-depth as a fiscal sponsorship relationship where Parks & Trails Council operates as the nonprofit umbrella for a friends group, allowing them to receive tax-deductible donations.

If you’re interested in learning more about how to partner please contact Brett Feldman at 651-726-2457 or
