$3,000 Goal

Friends of the Parks and Trails of St. Paul & Ramsey County is proud to continue the advocacy work for which we have been known for nearly 40 years, including:

  • Working for a more accessible entrance to Pig's Eye Park.
  • Collaborating with other environmental groups to save the 77 acres of grasslands east of Battle Creek Park that are home to rare ground-nesting birds.
  • And, soon, a tree-planting project in Frogtown.

That project — which we are calling Peggy's Grove — is the focus of our Give to the Max Day donations this year. Peggy's Grove will honor the 90th birthday of our indomitable founder, Peggy Lynch, with a diverse planting of trees at a park in the Frogtown neighborhood of St. Paul. We are pleased to be collaborating with Frogtown Green to boost the urban tree canopy in this vibrant, economically challenged area.

Contact our executive director, Amy Gage ( or 612-381-4110), to help reshape our future. Together, we can preserve and protect the public parks and trails that make our city and county more vital, healthy, peaceful places.
