We wanted to take a moment and check in with you. Like you, we are taking a moment to read the ever-changing flow of the situation, and identify a plan to best navigate these uncharted rapids.
We believe that access to nature is critical during these times and will continue to be. Therefore, thanks to incredible donors who helped us create a successful capital campaign, we are working with local businesses to finish the tasks needed to open the Chain of Lakes Water Trail this summer, continuing to positively impact our region during these times. We know that once we are able to travel again, even more people will be looking for experiences like this to reconnect with nature and loved ones and we look forward to welcoming you and others to the Chain of Lakes Water Trail.
Due to changing economic conditions, we are evaluating the continuation of other programs. We are pausing to assess our summer programming as well as our Ripple Effect Mini Grant Program. We are working with key stakeholders to determine how we can best encourage people to get out on the water in a safe manner. We will make thoughtful decisions in the coming months and will keep you informed of our actions and our progress.
With your support, we will continue to work hard to fulfill our mission to protect our waterways and connect people to nature! Thank you, and stay safe. We look forward to our days out on the water with you again!!
