Local Taskforce

In conjunction with the West Michigan Shoreline Regional Development Commission (WMSRDC), Ottawa County Parks applied for a $600,000 Great Lakes Restoration Initiative Grant to help cover surveying and treatment for private land owners. Grant awards are expected to be announced in May. Funding from Ottawa County’s Environmental Fund ($25,000) was approved by the Board of Commissioners in December. A local task force was formed by Ottawa County Parks to search for funds to assist land owners with the cost of treatment, as well as to survey for the pest and educate the community.
