Polaris grant approved!


Earlier this year John Schwanekamp applied for Polaris’s T.R.A.I.L.S Grant and was recently approved for the maximum amount of $10,000. The funds of this grant will be used for trail improvements such as hiring a dozer for trail grooming and creating new trails, buying new signs and posts for marking trails, help with purchasing a dump wagon and hardening material used to fill in holes on the trail, and for sealer for the three wooden bridges.

Polaris T.R.A.I.L.S Program


The first of its kind in the ATV industry, the T.R.A.I.L.S. grant program was launched in January 2006 for ATV clubs, associations and grassroots groups. ATV riders and the trails they use are the lifeblood of the sport and Polaris Industries Inc. aimed to create a program to help.

The T.R.A.I.L.S. program makes funds available to national, state and local organizations in the United States to ensure the future of ATV riding.

The grant program encompasses two main objectives - promoting safe and responsible riding and preserving access. Funds can be used by organizations for trail development and maintenance projects, safety and education initiatives, lobbying and other projects to increase and maintain land access.
