State and County Parks and Trails in Jeapordy

It was recently brought to my attention that there are a large number of state and federal parks on the chopping block to “save money”.

The number 1 income generator for most states is tourism. Tourism is almost solely driven by access to public lands and therefore is responsible for generating lareg amounts of community income.

Some famous examples include:

Eden: California

Greensfelder-the single best trail system in St Louis County

St. Croix Bluffs State Parks in Minnesota

Minnesota is already starting to see the huge loss in revenues.
