Ontario Trails Council - supported three Great Lakes Guardian Grant Applications. One on behalf of The Town of Deseronto, part of the new Hastings Trail Committee development; one in support of Headwaters Community in Action Dufferin and Peel Watershed, and a third in support of the Lake Superior North Shore. Each grant supports a better understanding of trails in a watershed environment, analysis of user patterns, signage for encroachment avoidance and unique wilderness shore trail protections. Thanks to all our partners who sought our support!
