The Port Inland Operation in Gulliver, MI, was approached by The Manistique Environmental Lab Committee to donate 600 tons of pathway mix for the lab’s improvement project. The donation will also receive matching money in the grant the lab is applying for to help pay for placement and grading.
The lab began the project after receiving funding from a timber harvest to remove dying beech trees from the area, make trail improvements and create handicap accessible areas.
The lab, located in Manistique Township, MI, is used by community members for environmental education classes and cross country team meets. Carmeuse will provide the pathway mix, while the lab arranges trucking. The proposed project is set to begin at the end of this year and be complete by summer 2019.
