Kaniksu Land Trust: Our Parks and Trails are Great Options for Local Outings

From the Bonner County Bee: “Nature is open. Play it safe.” That is the message from Idaho land trusts that operate nature reserves open to the public across Idaho. Kaniksu Land Trust, based in Sandpoint, ID, is a member of the Montana Association of Land Trusts.

“It is heartening to see more people getting outdoors with their families during these difficult times,” said Katie Cox, executive director of the Kaniksu Land Trust in Sandpoint. “While our visitors are enjoying these beautiful places, we ask them to follow guidelines for responsible outdoor recreation, including maintaining appropriate social distance on trails.”

Kaniksu Land Trust owns and manages Pine Street Woods, a 180-acre forest that features community outdoor education, recreational hiking/biking/skiing trails, and conservation.
