Bailey family donates to nature preserve

About a dozen members of the Bailey family have donated $20,000 to be used for improvements to Bailey Point Nature Preserve, the Elk River park that bears the family’s name.

The City Council has acknowledged the contributions with a resolution.

Bailey Point Nature Preserve is located at 1 Morton Ave., west of downtown Elk River at the confluence of the Elk and Mississippi rivers. It is Elk River’s newest park, opening in 2013.
