Grant announced for Paw Paw River Water Trail


The Paw Paw River Water Trail is receiving added support from the Michigan Natural Resources Trust Fund.

State Representative Pauline Wendzel announced this week the fund board has recommended a $284,000 grant be approved for the trail. It would be used for a public site along the trail to provide access to the river for canoeing, kayaking, and fishing while reducing erosion and improving accessible parking.

Wendzel says the “Paw Paw River is a gem in southwest Michigan with exceptional paddling, fishing and wildlife viewing experiences,” and she’s excited to announce it will be more accessible to all.

The 68-mile trail runs through Berrien and Van Buren counties.

The Natural Resources Trust Fund Board recommendation now goes on to the governor for final approval.
