Friends of the Michigan Air Line Trail

The Friends group, comprised of volunteers from all three towns and surrounding areas, supports the efforts of the Trail Council and serves as educators and ambassadors for the Air Line.  Trail cleanups and staffing of local events are just a few of the tasks that the Friends take on.

 

The Friends meet on the first Tuesday of the month. Right now meetings are at 6:30pm, and are currently held online, but the location may change every six months... check the website home page for the latest. Please join us!
