Subject: Strategic Planning Event for the Sauk River
I am excited to announce that St. Martin was awarded a technical
assistance planning grant from the National Park Service to develop a
loop trail along the Sauk River. At last nights kick off meeting we
identified partners to help us move forward with the project and
naturally we felt Friends of the Sauk River would be interested in
participating in the development of the trail. The trail is
approximately a 9 mile loop starts in the city of St. Martin and follows
the banks of the river. The long term goal is to have this trail
connect to the Wobegon and the Glacial Lakes Trail, creating over a
hundred miles of continuous trails.
The strategic planning meeting is set for January 15th, 2009 at 6 pm at
St. Martin City Hall. Can you or member of your organization attend the
planning session? An official announcement will follow as we get closer
to the event.
A map of the proposed trail is attached above for you to review. Please
let me know if you have any questions or would like more information.
