Big Island National Park

I haven't been out to the Island for a while. Shelly says the sign at the "entrance" reads "Big Island National Park". I have a friend who got a ticket for snowmobiling on the Island. 114 bucks. I have written about the island, activities, and the various owners..... This from the Orono Web site- Big Island History "The City of Orono stepped up and in partnership with the Minnehaha Creek Watershed District obtained a grant from the State of Minnesota to purchase the property for park purposes. A majority of the site was placed in a Conservation Easement to preserve its open space and natural character. The remainder of the site will only be minimally developed to allow for passive recreational and educational uses."
