Okoboji Foundation donated $50,000 to Trails Board

Okoboji Foundation President Rob Waterhouse presented a $50,000 check to Erin Reed, executive director, and Yvonne Taylor, board member, of the Dickinson County Trails Board for the Jones Pasture Trail project.

The Jones Pasture Trail will extend the current trail on the east side of Big Spirit Lake northward from 125th Street to the Iowa Department of Natural Resources Angler’s Bay Wildlife Management Area. This 2016 grant request was awarded from Okoboji Foundation Endowment resources.

The Okoboji Foundation works “to be the center point of community giving, providing leadership and building beneficial partnerships to make a lasting positive impact in the Iowa Great Lakes area.”
