These are some of the projects we have completed over the years at the Crow River Nature Park in Paynesville, Minnesota. These projects were done by volunteers, including many area youth, and were funded by private donations, local service organization contributions, and self-raised revenue from the Trail Guards. No tax-source money was used from any level of government for any of the projects isted here. 

The park address is:  200 Burr Street, Paynesville, MN 56362
