The Community Forest and our other preserves expand green space, prevent development, conserve land and waters, and provide river access to multiple user groups.

What is the amount that we are fundraising?

How will I be able to access the Community Forest?

  • A small parking lot has been created at the entrance off of Cty Rd FF with a ½ mile foot path to the property. There will be no public vehicular access.
  • Now KRLT owned, individuals can access the property by foot through River Hills and Glen Park.

Where is the Community Forest located?

  • The Community Forest is located north of Birch Cliff development. Between Glen Park and the River Falls School Forest.

What are other ways that I can give?
