Harbor Country Trail Gets Boost From Pokagon Fund

The Marquette Greenway hiking and biking trail in Harbor Country is getting a financial boost. The Pokagon Fund held a giveback dinner at the Bentwood Tavern in New Buffalo last week, raising nearly 97-hundred dollars of the $25,000 target to pay for pre-development work on the trail. Once completed, the Marquette Greenway will be 58 miles long and go from downtown New Buffalo to Calumet Park in Chicago. To date, 28 miles of the trail have either been built or funded. The Pokagon Fund is raising money for the 3.8 miles of the trail in Michigan, and they’ve got a goal to raise $200,000 for it in order to leverage state and federal grants in 2018.
