Throughout the years, the Huron-Clinton Metroparks and citizens of Southeast Michigan have benefited greatly from donated items and funds contributed by thoughtful and civic-minded individuals. A gift to the Huron-Clinton Metroparks is an investment in the outdoor recreation and education of Southeast Michigan that will be used and enjoyed today and by future generations of park visitors. Small or large, every gift makes a difference. Help improve the programs, facilities and services that can be provided by the metroparks.
Many individuals or groups have donated funds designated for items like books, wildflowers, taxidermy mounts, microscopes, cameras and other audio-video equipment to help their favorite Metropark’s interpretive center. For example, all of the artifacts, including the flat bottomed boats and waterfowl decoys, displayed at the Marshlands Museum at Lake Erie were donated. Others have contributed all, or portions, of their estates that have been used to build a classroom and a boardwalk at Kensington. Many of the benches seen and used throughout the Metroparks have been donated. A playground at Delhi Metropark was partially funded with money raised by a group of local families.
These are just a few of the many ways donated funds have been used to enhance your Metroparks. Most Metroparks and facilities have lists of items that could improve their operations or programs.
