An urban whitewater trail is created along the Mississippi River in the St. Anthony Falls area in Minneapolis. The trail must be primarily developed for whitewater rafters, canoers, and kayakers.
(a) The commissioner of natural resources must coordinate the creation of the Whitewater Trail by placing designation signs near and along the river and must publicize the designation.
(b) In designating the Mississippi Whitewater Trail, the commissioner must work with other federal, state, and local agencies and private businesses and organizations interested in the trail.
The commissioner of natural resources is authorized to accept, on behalf of a nonprofit corporation, donations of land or easements in land for the Whitewater Trail and may seek and accept money for the trail from other public and private sources.
