Nearly $1m Grant Awarded to Town of Shipshewana for Pumpkinvine Extension

Thanks in part to a generous NextLevel Trails Grant, and the work of more than a few determined individuals, Pumpkinvine Nature Trail will finally connect to downtown Shipshewana by the end of 2021.

On Thursday, March 4th, the grantees of the 2nd round of NextLevel Trails Grants were announced–nearly a near after the original announcement predictions, due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Many of these projects were stalled unsure of when, or if, they would receive the monies promised in these grants.

For Pumpkinvine enthusiasts like ourselves, this was thrilling news and confirmation of the good that this Trail brings to our communities.
