2017 $10,000 POLARIS TRAILS GRANT

EXCITING NEWS!! MI-TRALE just got word we were awarded a $10,000 Polaris Trails Grant!! Thank you Polaris!!

MI-TRALE’s ORV safety education includes participating at Camp Nesbit which is a four-day outdoor educational experience for all 6th grade students within Ontonagon, Gogebic and Baraga Counties of the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. MI-TRALE teaches each year over 100 students the Michigan ORV Safety Training Course so they can receive their permits to ride. We requested funds to purchase much needed safety equipment for these youth ORV safety training classes. The major items are: Helmets, eye protection, 2 youth ATV’s and various equipment for making the field training course.

The final area we requested funding for is trail counters. To properly maintain the trails we need to understand trail usage. The trail counts will provide the data required to properly schedule future maintenance projects. A secondary use for this data will be to promote our recreational sport by being able to publicize the numbers of riders that visit the area. This would help educate people on the important role that the ORV riders have in the tourist economy.

THANK YOU again Polaris!
