NORFOLK, Neb. (AP) _ The Nebraska Game and Park Commission has received $10,000 in funding from a grant program to continue development and management planning for the Cowboy Recreation and Nature Trail in northern Nebraska.
The Norfolk Daily News (http://bit.ly/1FEd0O1 ) reports the grant was received under the Rails-to-Trails Conservancy’s newly launched Doppelt Family Trail Development Fund. The fund supports organizations and local governments that conduct projects to build and improve trails on former rail lines. Three different projects across the country have been funded.
Public meetings will be held later this year to discuss the trail’s future and ways to increase visitation.
