Berrien County trail plan gets $10,000 boost from Berrien Community Foundation
BERRIEN COUNTY, Mich. – A county-wide trail plan has received a $10,000 boost in funding thanks to a grant from the Berrien Community Foundation.
This grant helps fund a master plan to examine existing trails and sites for future trails that cover longer distances in Berrien County.
Funds from the grant will support a county-wide trails and waterways plan led by Friends of Berrien County Trails.
“This plan is important to grow our trail system and allow more people to enjoy the beauty of Berrien County,” said Berrien Community President Lisa Cripps-Downey. “Whether it is a short walk, a long hike or a kayak adventure, the county has much to offer and potential for even more outdoor opportunities. This grant is made possible through a life-end endowment gift made 16 years ago by Bernadette Janda McKittrick that focused, in part, on projects that benefit all of Berrien County. This plan is important to everyone in our community and definitely fits that bill.”
