Pic River to build coastal trail
The Ojibways of the Pic River are planning a coastal trail to protect sand dunes and natural habitat from the mouth of the Pic River to Heron Bay on Lake Superior.
“Congratulations to the Ojibways of the Pic River First Nation and their partners for taking steps to protect Lake Superior,” said Environment Minister Jim Bradley. “This is a great example of groups coming together to help ensure that our Great Lakes are drinkable, swimmable and fishable.”
Pic River received a $21,340 grant through Ontario’s Great Lakes Guardian Community Fund to develop the coastal trail along with the Voyageur Trail Association and Trans Canada Trail.
Signage along the boardwalk trail will identify points of historical and environmental interest.
The Great Lakes Guardian Community Fund was developed to provide grants to grassroots community groups for activities such as cleaning up a beach or shoreline, restoring a wetland or creating a coastal or riverside trail.
