August 5 - Save the River Bottoms

A little bit about Save the River Bottoms:

Our group and many citizens are working to preserve one of the most treasured, natural surface, multi-user trails in the Twin Cities metro area at the Minnesota River Valley Bottoms in Bloomington, MN. We want to save the area from an outdated, fiscally irresponsible, and non-sustainable paved trail. There are many people in the cycling, hiking, jogging, and birding community, as well as many tax payers and nature enthusiasts that are against a paved trail.
