In 1992, Lewiston’s Urban Forestry Commission and Parks and Recreation Commission endorsed the concept of a of non profit citizens group working with the City to plan, develop and maintain Ruth Rowell Modie Wildlife Park. Modie Park Conservancy, a 501 (3) c non-profit group, was organized and signed a joint development with Lewiston in 1996.

Volunteers and city crews have worked to define the dream of a wildlife park, create a plan, and begin building that plan. There is still much to do.
