The Glendora City Council is expected to accept $30,000 in grant funds to make signage and other improvements in the Big Dalton Wilderness Park.

The grant, awarded March 21, will be used to establish interpretive signage on Big Dalton Canyon Trail, two information kiosks, bike racks and the addition of trail pictures on trailhead signage.

The Habitat Conservation Fund was awarded by the California Department of Parks & Recreation, Office of Grants and Local Services.

$2 million is awarded each year to cities, counties and districts through a competitive application process for a variety of wildlife, plant and urban trails projects, according to city staff.

$30,000 in matching funds will be required, a portion of which will come from in kind services. The remaining amount will come from the city’s Park Department Fund.

The City Council will discuss this item at the City Council meeting scheduled for tonight at 7 p.m. in the Council Chambers, 116 E. Foothill Blvd.
