Volunteering for the love of the lore and the locals


Mary Plein, of Ideal Township, resides at the center of the Paul Bunyan Scenic Byway — literally and figuratively.

She’s involved in both the Paul Bunyan Scenic Byway Association (PBSBA) and the Ideal Community Service Organization (ICSO).

As former chair of the PBSBA, Plein loves the stories of Paul and Babe. Sharing that story allows the association to tell visitors about why the area is great.
