Mendon woman raising money for conservation by walking the county

A Mendon Township woman is inviting participants to join her as she concludes a 60-mile walk through St. Joseph County Saturday.
Carol Higgins, president of the St. Joseph County Conservation District Board, began the four-day walk Wednesday.
Higgins said her twofold goal is to bring awareness to local conservation and to earn financial pledges that she will turn over to the Centreville-based conservation district.
With 30 miles already under her belt, Higgins today is expected to complete a 20-mile portion starting at Meyer Broadway Park, walking to White Pigeon and returning to her starting point.
The final day is Saturday and will cover 10 miles, beginning at 8 a.m. at Rawson’s King Mill and concluding in Colon. State Rep. Aaron Miller plans to join Higgins for the Saturday portion, he said.
Prospective walkers and/or donors are asked to call or text 496-7711.
