Getting outside to connect with nature!

Study after study shows that the outdoors is essential for our physical and psychological health! We support outreach programs to get people outside.

Career Exploration Program is a new program that will launch in the spring of 2022 to introduce middle and high school students to careers in the environmental and parks sectors.  

Friends of Metro Parks provides funding for Teacher's Kits and buses to get children into our parks.

Camping for all: we are working with Summit Metro Parks to make overnight camping kits available so everyone has a chance to try it for free!
