New Pump Track!
May 4th at 9:00 am. Come out and join Friends of Van Riper, Gauthier Insurance and Maple Ridge for a day at Van Riper. The new pump track has arrived and we are joining forces to get it assembled. It’s a modular track, no digging required. Just measure and fasten together. If volunteers and time permit, we will head north across 41 to resurrect the Mtb (mountain bike trail) and hiking trails. There’s been a large tree down for the last couple years and maybe a few more from the tough winter. Otherwise bring your bikes and sneak in some fun after the pump tracks together.
Looking to secure camp sites at Van Riper for family?
They are now accepting campsite reservations 6 months in advance.

An increase in interest can offer the possibility of more equipment.
Beginning Oct. 1, 2020, Michigan residents boarding a domestic flight or entering certain federal facilities, military bases and nuclear power plants must show a REAL ID-compliant document. The federal standards known as REAL ID were drafted in response to the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attacks based on recommendations from the 9/11 Commission. REAL ID sets document and security protocols for the production of driver’s licenses and ID cards, including the use of features to prevent illegal copying or altering. If the convenience of carrying a license or ID that meets all requirements for boarding a plane for domestic travel appeals to you, then a REAL ID-compliant license or ID is the right choice for you. If you have an enhanced driver’s license or enhanced state ID card, you already have a REAL ID-compliant card. If you don’t have an enhanced card, please continue reading. Michigan Residents: Take your Michigan license or ID card and proof of your Social Security number and citizenship or legal presence to a Secretary of State office. You may apply for a REAL ID-compliant license or ID card at any time. Or you can wait until it’s time to renew. Your renewal notice will state whether or not your license or ID is REAL ID compliant if there is any question about it. All Applicants: Your photograph will be taken at the branch office and the appropriate driver’s license or ID card fees will be due. There is no additional fee for obtaining a REAL ID-compliant license or ID card. Name Changes: If your name is different than what is shown on your birth certificate, you will need to provide evidence of a legal name change, such as a marriage certificate, divorce decree or court action. If your driver’s license or state ID card is not REAL ID compliant, you may show another form of acceptable documentation, such as a valid U.S. passport or passport card.
