Census data informs decisions about federal, state, and local funding for infrastructure, education, health care and beyond. For rural areas, the Census shapes things like rural water and waste disposal systems, state wildlife grants, and hunter education and safety. An incomplete count means the possibility of lost funds for these important resources. Complete your 2020 Census today!
Menard County Trails & Greenways plans to honor the 50th anniversary of Earth Day on April 22, albeit a little differently than we had planned. While we won’t be able to physically gather as friends and neighbors to help clean up Menard County, we can come together in the same spirit, do some good work around (or even inside!) our homes, and share our efforts virtually.
Public health experts and government leaders are encouraging us to safely get outdoors, underscoring more than ever the importance of our natural world to our health and well-being. Let’s take a moment, however big or small, to return the favor.
Please visit the new Menard County Trails & Greenways website! (Click on link below). The site features a Calendar, where MCTG events and related activities are posted; Ways to Discovery, where we’ve started to describe “trails & greenways” to explore; and MCTG Blog, where we will post news, information, photos, and other items of interest to outdoor enthusiasts.
