Representative Brown announces DNR, DEQ grants around the Thumb

(AREA) -- A number of grants from the Michigan Department of Natural Resources and Department of Environmental Quality will benefit natural sites in the Thumb. State Representative Terry Brown of Pigeon says the DEQ awarded a $2,844 grant to the Huron County Health Department and a $1,501 grant to the Sanilac County Health Department for monitoring Lake Huron beaches. Sanilac County also received a $35,100 grant from the DNR for the Sanilac Conservation District. Brown says these grants will help local governments maintain safety and improve natural resources, so that residents can continue to enjoy the best of what Mother Nature has to offer.
