Swedetown Trails Club and Calumet Township announced an addition to the Swedetown Recreation Area of 18 acres of land adjacent to Spruce Street. This area has been used as the start and finish area for the Great Bear Chase, with the kind permission of the private property owner. Now it is secured permanently for public recreation in all seasons.

Support for the land acquisition came from a Michigan Natural Resources Trust Fund Grant. The grant required a local fund match of 25% to show community support, and additional funds to compensate for the usable gravel on the parcel. We had many generous donors for Giving Tuesday 2022 that made it possible to complete the acquisition.

Improvements began as soon as the parcel was acquired:

The new parcel provides ample room for future races and other events. It will be further developed to provide a trailhead and other amenities close to the Village of Calumet.
