Department of Environmental Quality awards $285,000 to promote, enhance Michigan trails


LANSING, Michigan — More than $285,000 is being awarded for the promotion and improvement of coastal community trails in Michigan.

The state Department of Environmental Quality's Office of the Great on Friday announced the funding, which is part of a "trail towns" tourism development approach. The effort uses recreational trail systems as the focus for community activity, economic revitalization and conservation.

The five coastal grants include $95,000 for Grand Traverse County; nearly $56,000 for the Clinton River Watershed Council; about $50,000 each for the Huron River Watershed Council and the West Michigan Environmental Action Council; and $36,000 for the Land Information Access Association.

The grant funding was made available by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.
