For the Short Hills Cycling Club (SHCC), hard work rewards not only those involved, but the focus of their passion as well.  The club has been busy providing stewardship efforts to the Short Hills Provincial Park trail network for the past few years, including trail construction, redesign and restoration.  To aid in their efforts, the club went through the grant writing process and are now the proud recipients of a prestigious Ontario Trillium Foundation Grant of $14000, which will be allocated to new tools, trail maintenance equipment and a trailer.

The SHCC plans to use the tools to facilitate continued work in the park with greater capacity, making it easier for the Friends of Short Hills Park and the Niagara Bruce Trail Association to work alongside them on projects.  The SHCC is also planning to provide access to the equipment to other community based volunteer groups and events.

Congratulations to the SHCC and keep up the great work!
