We are so excited to announce over $180,000 has been raised, two-thirds of our $275,000 goal, for our Chain of Lakes Water Trail Campaign and we are now asking the public to help us complete our goal by the end of 2019.

Through this project we will install signs at each approved water trail access site and develop materials needed for paddlers to have a quality experience. The signs and materials will include practical information on the trail but also convey important messages such as stewardship, safety and highlight the local communities. Such information ensures individuals will have a safe and enjoyable adventure but also be informed on how to be good stewards of our lakes, rivers, and wildlife.

We are grateful for the significant contributions that have been made by Michigan Department of Agriculture and Rural Development, Rotary Charities of Traverse City, The Harry A. and Margaret D. Towsley Foundation, DTE Energy Foundation, Frey Foundation, and many of the local governments and non-profits who own and maintain the water trail access sites.
