Land Committee

Parks & Trails Council of Minnesota’s Land Committee oversees the process of assessing each land project. The committee is guided by P&TC’s Strategic Land Acquisition Plan with its key criteria that each land acquisition project must meet:

  • Provides high-quality outdoor recreation, or
  • Preserves natural diversity, or
  • Enhances connectivity

Land Committee members are elected by the board of directors with seven voting members and several non-voting members.
