2018 SE Michigan Council of Governments (SEMCOG) Regional Showcase Award

The Matthaei Botanical Gardens Trail received a 2018 Regional Showcase Award, awarded by the Southeast Michigan Council of Governments (SEMCOG). Recognizing our partnership with the University of Michigan, Washtenaw County, Michigan and Ann Arbor Charter Township, Michigan, this award showcases a project that represents strategies and recommendations in adopted SEMCOG plans.

Award-winning projects make a significant contribution to the vision of a connected, thriving region of small towns, dynamic urban centers, active waterfronts, diverse neighborhoods, agricultural land, and parks, trails and natural areas. The Matthaei Botanical Gardens Trail is a paved, two-mile hiking and biking path connecting the botanical gardens with a network of SE Michigan area trail systems.
