Eight RPLS students, Maria Spanier, Vinny Haugen, Tori Slawick, Emily Medcalf, Savannah Kundert, Ethan Tracy, Hannah Mathews, and Tylar Larson along with faculty members Kristi Montandon and Brooke Burk attended the Legislative Action Day with the Greater Minnesota Parks and Trails Commission. As part of this day, they worked with the Commission to discuss important projects and funding needed for parks and trails in our state. Of greatest concern was the support of Legacy Funds for parks and trails in greater Minnesota (those outside the metro and DNR). As part of these efforts, they met with DNR Commissioner Strommen, Representative Ruud, and Senator Ferentz.
