Community Foundation of Marquette County provides funding to support the maintenance of the Big Bay Pathway Ski Trail
Three component funds of the Community Foundation came together on June 5, 2018 to support the Powell Township Recreation Network. Health and Wellness Fund, Community Advised Big Bay Fund and the Robert Cowell and Kathleen Olivier Donor Advised Fund provided $500.00 grant each for a total of $1,500.00. The grant proposal was submitted to the Marquette Spring Program 2018.
Powell Township is reinvigorating its activities in relation to trail development after 8 years of development of two parks in the township– Thomas’ Rock Scenic Overlook and Burns Landing. The investment in used equipment is necessary to move forward to maintain existing trails and to create an access trail for the youth from Powell Township School.
