The Metroparks are excited to announce that three of our regular volunteer groups were awarded mParks Volunteer Service Awards at a ceremony last night. Our nominees and staff traveled to Lansing where mParks awarded Toni Spears, CRAMBA and Beyond the Seed Greenhouse & Gardens for their committed service to the Metroparks.

In support of the Shelden Trails project at Stony Creek Metropark, Clinton River Area Mountain Biking Association (CRAMBA) presented the Metroparks Foundation a check for $3,000 at its annual Ay CRAMBA It’s Cold Out! Fat Tire Bike/Snow Bike Festival.
The Shelden Trails project will re-evaluate the trail system to develop a sustainable, multi-use design with possible expansion. The design phase is anticipated to begin in June.
CRAMBA is a chapter of the International Mountain Biking Association, and has a mission to maintain and develop mountain biking trail access, support relationships with land managers, and promote responsible mountain biking in southeast Michigan. CRAMBA has been a long-time partner with the Metroparks and we are very grateful for their generosity and continued support. Thank you, CRAMBA, for all your help in maintaining our trails!
