Missouri DNR receives grant for trail projects

The Missouri Department of Natural Resources announced earlier this week that they have received more than $600,000 in grant funding from the Recreational Trails Program.

The department selected 10 trail projects that would receive the money. Johnson’s Shut-Ins received $87,588 to build an accessible trail to the local park store. St. Joe State Park also received funding from the grant. The money they received will go toward trail renovation, off-road vehicle education and trail restrooms. Money will also be given to the Ozark Trail Association for educational maps.

The Recreational Trails Program is a federally funded grant program that awards money for trail restoration and development.
