Bank Midwest Donates to the Tatanka Ska Trailhead

Tatanka Trail Donation

Spirit Lake – Bank Midwest donates to Tatanka Ska Trailhead.

Recreation trails provide important benefits to communities, and it takes a lot of effort and coordination to make them happen. Recreation trails promote healthy communities and offer outlets for people to commune with nature beyond their backyards. They also provide a safe space for transportation by connecting communities throughout a region.

In May 2022, the Dickinson County Trails Board completed construction of Tatanka Ska Trailhead, a project that was generously funded by grants, sponsorships, and donations. Tatanka Ska Trailhead is inspired by Native American beadwork, northwest Iowa’s prairie landscape, and railroad elements that tie into the rail trail theme. Facilities include restrooms, picnic tables, a water fountain and more.

“The Tatanka Ska Trailhead is an outstanding addition to the Lakes Area,” said Luke Donnenwerth, Market President at Bank Midwest. “Bank Midwest is proud to be a donor to the Tatanka Ska Trailhead through our 2021 Community Giving campaign.”
