Dakota County Parks

Forming meaningful partnerships is a part of our work at Conservation Minnesota. Working together ensures that Minnesota’s Great Outdoors are preserved and accessible for future generations. The partnership with Dakota County Parks, which became official in February 2016, will do just that.

Conservation Minnesota has been working with Dakota County Parks to improve turnout for their many volunteer events and is getting to know the dedicated staff and existing volunteers.

Moving forward, we will work together on prairie restoration, combating invasive species, fun family events, and much more. We will share and provide volunteer opportunities at Lebanon Hills Regional Park and Dakota County’s newest edition, Whitetail Woods Regional Park.
