    The 2018 Great Lakes Park Training Institute will be held on February 26 - March 1 at Pokagon State Park. One of the most important part of the GLPTI is our awards ceremony when we recognize exemplary projects and programs in the Great Lakes region. Please consider submitting an application for the Park, Facility or Program Award. We would love to recognize your parks and recreation agency on Tuesday, February 28 for the outstanding projects or programs that are benefitting your community.
