This is our way to honor the dedication of Mike Tegeder, who finished his term as president of Parks & Trails Council in March. Mike made sharing these special places a key part of his life. Shortly before Mike’s term ended he was diagnosed with cancer. While we always show our appreciation for our out-going presidents, this became a particularly poignant time to think about the important contributions that Mike has made to parks and trails. He gave countless hours and dedication to helping advance the mission of acquiring and protecting critical land for the public to enjoy. These tokens are truly inspired by they way Mike goes out of his way to share these special places with friends and family. We’re saddened to share that on July 9 Mike passed away. He leaves a legacy of appreciation and dedication to Minnesota’s outdoors.
