Friends of Scandia Parks and Trails
Are you interested in parks and natural areas?
Do you wish for more hiking, biking and horse trails in Scandia?
Would you like to see more permanent protection for natural areas?
Take a holiday hike! This is a beautiful time of year to enjoy our city's natural resources. Wind in the Pines park is in its glory. WIP is located off of Hwy 95 a mile north of the 95/97 intersection. Look for the brown "Nature Park" signs that point to the parking area. Thanks to the city's Parks and Rec Committee, we now have more trail markers and a new set of log steps that make access to the creek area much easier.
Meetings of the Friends board. We meet the second Monday of every month at 7 pm at the Scandia Community Center. You're welcome to join us at any meeting.
Friends of Scandia Parks and Trails is a non-profit (501c3) organization dedicated to protecting and enhancing the parks, trails, open space and natural areas in the City of Scandia. We will seek funding for creating and improving parks, such as improving trails and signage at Wind in the Pines Nature Park; creating accessible trails and restoring habitat at Lilleskogen Park and assisting with Gateway Trail plans and other bicycle and recreational trails.
Several volunteer events each year will engage citizens in stewardship activities and enjoyment of Scandia's natural areas. Please join us to improve Scandia's parks and trials!
