In our second summer season of ownership, the Lincoln Community River Park has grown into a popular community site, used by families, nature enthusiasts and educators alike. The Lincoln Community River Park Working Group is fine-tuning plans for low-impact public access and recreation and management of natural resources. Through a partnership with Ponderosa Snow Warriors, a local snowmobiling group, we continued our efforts to mitigate noxious weeds.
Five Valleys staff also participated in Envision Lincoln, a collaboration of Lincoln residents, business owners and regional conservation, recreation and civic organizations that seeks to use Lincoln’s location, resources and attractions to build a solid foundation for future growth and sustainability. One of the major aspects of Envision Lincoln is a trails system, and the River Park is a cornerstone of that trails plan. We’re excited for what future seasons will bring to these exciting efforts.
