SMART was created to promote the connection of trails among nine southwest Michigan counties and with trails in neighboring regions.  The nine southwest Michigan counties include Allegan, Barry, Berrien, Branch, Calhoun, Cass, Kalamazoo, St. Joseph, and Van Buren.

 

This regional collaboration would allow for trails to expand beyond geographic boundaries.  Having a connected system of trails will link people and communities.  It will also provide more opportunities for people to connect to and explore nature and its interconnected ecosystems.  Nature knows no geographic limits. 

WOULD YOU LIKE TO JOIN SMART?

 

If you send your name, address, phone number and email to Gautam Mani at manig@swmpc.org, you will be added to the SMART contact list to be informed of upcoming events and trail planning opportunities in southwest Michigan.
