INTERNATIONAL FALLS, Minn. (AP) — The Voyageurs National Park Association has announced a three-year, $150,000 grant for the park on Minnesota’s northern border.

The independent association celebrates its 50th anniversary next year as well as the park’s 40th anniversary. The Landmark Grant kicks off three years of projects in celebration of Voyageurs and is meant to usher in the next 50 years.

Voyageurs Superintendent Mike Ward says the grant will help the park serve the public and protect its resources where its own budgets are lacking.

The funding will be used to continue and jump start projects involving land preservation, site restoration, research, education, youth engagement and visitor services.
