Ice Age Floods geologic trail presentations planned


The National Park Service, along with local groups, will hold a discussion of an Ice Age Floods National Geologic Trail long-range interpretive plan here on Jan. 23.

The meeting will take place at 1 p.m., at the Coulee Dam community room at town hall.

Denise Bausch will make a 45-minute presentation of the Ice Age Floods Trail plan, followed by a question-and-answer period.

Also making a presentation will be Russell Powers, deputy city clerk of Electric City, on what the city is doing on its Pathway & Trail plan. The city plans a recreation trail through the city with an Ice Age Floods theme. Electric City has been working on its trail plan for the past year, and plans to use tourism-dedicated lodging tax funds to get the plan started.

The Coulee Area Park & Recreation District’s Bob Valen will discuss building a partnership with the NPS and developing a plan to create wayside exhibits to help tell the story of the Ice Age Floods geology and to build community support to link community trails.

Two town council members of Coulee Dam, David Schmidt and Gayle Swagerty, will discuss what is going in their town related to trail development.

A representative of the Grand Coulee Dam Area Chamber of Commerce’s Economic Development Council will also participate in the presentations.

The meeting is being coordinated by Tiffany Quilter of the Grant County Health District.

Leaders of a number of community groups have been invited.
