“Part of MetroParks’ mission is to protect the region’s natural heritage. With more than 16,000 acres to protect, we certainly need help from volunteers,” said Yvonne Dunphe, MetroParks volunteer coordinator. “Make a Difference Day is the perfect occasion to spend a beautiful fall day making a difference in one of our 18 clean, safe MetroParks.”
Local levy support makes up approximately 80 percent of Five Rivers MetroParks annual revenue, and the thousands of volunteers who work side-by-side with MetroParks’ staff help extend tax dollars and other resources.
