Keri Wanner - NORTH DAKOTA

Keri Wanner

In Keri Wanner’s eight years as the Program Manager for Snowmobile North Dakota, a non-profit organization representing snowmobilers in North Dakota, she has worked with local snowmobile clubs, communities, North Dakota Parks and Recreation Department and North Dakota law makers to ensure snowmobilers have quality groomed trails to operate on.

That work includes helping to maintain trail leases, applying for grant funds and working to maintain volunteer support for snowmobile trails. Being an avid snowmobiler and trail user herself, she understands why trails are important, especially winter trails in keeping people active and in the outdoors year round.

Although she works primarily to advance snowmobiling she is also an advocate for other types of trail uses. During the 2009 ND Legislative session she worked with the legislature to secure additional funding for youth snowmobile safety education and helped to secure funding for off-highway vehicle trail development and youth safety. She is also a member of North Dakota’s Recreational Trail Program Advisory Committee and has worked with off-highway vehicle clubs and non motorized user groups to find common solutions to shared problems.

One accomplishment Keri is extremely proud of happened in January 2010, when Keri was instrumental in bringing the Pink Ribbon Riders, a breast cancer awareness trail ride, to ND which raised over $32,000 for cancer patients.
