PARRY SOUND – The Georgian Bay Biosphere Reserve has received a grant from Mountain Equipment Co-op to improve infrastructure and access to several of the Amazing Places.

Ten Amazing Places were nominated by the public to showcase special features of the Georgian Bay Biosphere region. The program wants to connect people to nature, and is developing a route with community partners to encourage people to get outside and experience the 30,000 Islands area.

The $14,368 from MEC will go towards signage, bike racks, and trails to enhance access to Amazing Place locations. Partners at each place will install trailhead signs that highlight activities year-round, natural wonders, and cultural history.
