The State Lands Development and Renovation category provides funding to two state agencies to repair, renovate, and develop outdoor recreation facilities on existing recreation lands. As the popularity of outdoor recreation increases in our state, these grants help address overcrowding, ensure our outdoor amenities are safe for public use, improve visitor experience, and allow more people to enjoy our great outdoors.
The Department of Natural Resources will use this grant to renovate the ORV trailhead facility at Beverly Dunes ORV Park, located in Grant County near the town of Beverly. This project will provide funding for materials, staffing, permits, cultural resources review, and construction for the renovation of the current ORV trailhead and campsites. The primary recreational opportunity provided by this project is safe and sustainable ORV recreation.
