The Yellowstone Trail of Minnesota (YTMN) would like to invite leaders of history, culture, arts, community and economic development to join us in revitalizing the Yellowstone Trail brand to the benefit of all Yellowstone Trail communities.
YTMN held its first meeting in Granite Falls in 2018, bringing together leaders from eight communities running from Buffalo Lake to Granite Falls. By 2020 the organization had inte- grated all communities in the western half of the state, from Buffalo Lake to Ortonville. In 2021, YTMN was successful in its pursuit of a Minnesota Historical Society Partnership (Legacy) grant, which was used to fund the development of a Yellowstone Trail Cultural Heritage Tourism Master Plan. Over the past two years, the organization has been developing the document with YTMN members across the state alongside consultant Jim Roe.
The Yellowstone Trail Master Plan presents the history of the Yellowstone Trail while also laying the groundwork for future organizational efforts with a guiding source document. The Master Plan was presented to western Minnesota communities this past winter and is now set to be rolled out before eastern Minnesota communities during a presentation that will be held Wednesday, May 24 at the Glencoe City Center.
You are invited:

*Livestream to be made available*
It is our hope that those in attendance will become informed on the past and potential of the Yellowstone Trail brand legacy, and that they will be inspired to join in the effort and/or help spread the word. Links to a livestream of the event will be made available, but we encourage individuals to be present in person to allow for face-to-face introductions. There is no cost to attend.
Please RSVP through the following eventbrite link to inform us if you plan to attend.
This activity is made possible by the voters of Minnesota through grants from the Minnesota Historical Society, thanks to a legislative appropriation from the arts and cultural heritage fund.”
