Federal Grant Will Further Connect Campus and Community

December 22, 2003

December 22, 2003, Greencastle, Ind. - A grant provided by the federal Department of Transportation, and awarded by the Indiana Department of Transportation, will create new recreational opportunities for DePauw and the City of Greencastle. "Mayor Nancy Michael of Greencastle said her town's $905,410 grant would be used for phase four of a multi-phase trail system crisscrossing Greencastle," notes an article in the Tribune Star of Terre Haute, Indiana. "This addition will connect the DePauw University campus with the Putnam County Hospital. Several phases are complete, Michael said, and the trail has proven to be extremely popular. 'These pathways are tremendous benefits,' she said."

In September, DePauw announced plans to create a nearly 480-acre Nature Park west of campus which feature as many as four trails for walking, jogging, hiking and biking; arboretums; a canoe launch; and outdoor classrooms. The project is being made possible by a gift of property from Hanson Aggregates. Read more about the DePauw University Nature Park by clicking here.
