Projects in Progress Update

  • The Historic Mailcarrier Interpretation for Byway Visitors project is nearing the end of its first year of implementation. By the end of the 2007 season, nearly a dozen live performances by the By-The-Way Players will have been presented. The first season will be evaluated and a second season will kick off next spring with the first presentation at the Governor's Fishing Opener Community Picnic. This project is funded in part by a federal scenic byways grant with a major portion of the local match expected through the US Army Corps of Engineers Handshake Program.
  • An interpretive panel, focusing on shallow water lakes and their unique ecology has been developed for Rice Lake, located on the south side of CSAH 11, east of Pequot lakes. The panel will be fabricated and installed this fall along the east side of Rice Lake. The DNR's Pam Perry and Gary Drotts are the PBSBA advisors for this project which is funded by a DNR Environmental Partnership grant with local match provided by some in-kind sponsorship and local donations.
  • The Tour Brochure grant has been extended to June, 2011. The PBSBA is currently developing text and layout design. There is a $5000 local match required. Already committed is $1000. All supporters will be listed in the 20-24 page brochure.
