    On Wednesday, August 25th, John Lenczewski (MNTU Executive Director) and I had the opportunity of presenting our latest proposal for Outdoor Heritage Funding to the Lessard-Sams Outdoor Heritage Council. Our proposal includes 12 projects across Minnesota—three in northeast MN, three near the Twin Cities Metro, and 6 projects in the southeast region. This proposal is for fiscal year 2012 and 2013. If we are fortunate enough to receive this grant, our proposed work could get started July 2011 and would be finished by the end of June 2013. A lot of input from TU volunteers across the state went into this proposal—thank you to everyone who’s been involved in this process!

    In the meantime, we’re working full steam ahead on the projects in our first OHF grant. You can see those projects on our Lessard-Sams Project page right here at mntu.org. Many projects have been completed already. We’ll soon be updating that page with the status of each project and include before and after photos where applicable. Our first OHF grant is for projects that will be completed in the July 2009-June 2011 timeframe. We’ll soon be getting underway with projects planned in our second OHF grant. The timeframe for those projects is July 2010-June 2012.

    Full details and status reports on all our projects will be coming shortly!
