Friends of the Parks and Trails of St. Paul and Ramsey County

Celebrating our 30th anniversary, we are a local non-profit organization that works to promote, protect, and enhance parks, trails, and open space in St. Paul and Ramsey County. We are not affiliated with any certain park or trail, but are a policy-oriented group that works with community councils, city and county governments, state agencies such as the DNR and MnDOT, and federal agencies, such as the National Park Service in the Department of the Interior.

Environment and Animals

Community outreach, especially to diverse populations. Fundraising. Publicity. Grant writing.

Attendance at monthly meetings is encouraged, to the extent possible. We realize everyone is busy and not able to attend all meetings. Financial contribution is encouraged, but not required.

Governance. Policy advocacy involvement, as desired.
