Membership Overview

Friends of the Metroparks are committed supporters who receive membership benefits in thanks for their gifts.

Your membership contribution will help to maintain and improve the Metroparks so that you and others may continue to enjoy them for generations to come.  Your donation will be used to maintain and improve recreational trails, preserve natural habitats, or wherever it is needed most. Your gift will support these critical needs and demonstrate your commitment to help protect and maintain the Metroparks.

When you become a Friend of the Metroparks, your gift is made to the Metroparks Foundation, a 501(c)(3) organization supporting the Huron-Clinton Metroparks. In most cases, your membership contribution will be fully tax-deductible.
