Voyageurs National Park seeks input on future

Voyageurs National Park, and the park's not-for-profit-partner, Voyageurs National Park Association (VNPA) invites the public to take part in a discussion to shape the national park's focus over the next five years.

The VNPA will be hosting public brainstorming sessions on Monday, May 8 at the Voyageurs National Park Headquarters, 360 Highway 11 East, International Falls, MN. The sessions will be held from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m., 1-3 p.m., and 5:30-7:30 p.m.

During the brainstorming sessions national park management and VNPA will be seeking input on: whether the public feel the national park is doing well; what could the national park improve upon in the future; what the public feels the national park management should focus on over the next five years; and how the public feels VNPA could make the most impact in supporting the park in the future.

All members of the public who have an interest in the future of Voyageurs National Park are encouraged to attend one of these sessions. Refreshments will be provided by VNPA.

Anyone unable to attend one of the brainstorming sessions in person, but would like to provide input on future priorities related to the park can share insight through May 1 by visiting VNPA's website to take a short survey at or by emailing or mailing ideas to Park Superintendent, 360 Highway 11 East, International Falls, MN 56649.

Information gathered during this brainstorming sessions will be shared with the Voyageurs National Park leadership team, all park staff and park partners. During the remainder of the May 8 week the park team members will be working together to develop a shared vision for future priorities for the park.
