DNR gives $550k from US to 7 parks/rec projects


LANSING, Mich. (AP) -- The Michigan Department of Natural Resources says it has awarded $550,000 to seven parks and recreation facilities from the federal Land and Water Conservation Fund.

The state administers the federal program in Michigan. The DNR says the fund "supports cities, counties and townships in their efforts to provide better public outdoor recreation opportunities for their residents."

The grants announced Tuesday go to Crawford County, Allegan County's Laketown Township, the city of Leslie in Ingham County, Berrien County's Lincoln Township, Wayne County's Plymouth Township, Saginaw County's Richland Township, and the city of Traverse City in Grand Traverse County.
