Initial Release of Coloring Book Pages
6.27.2023 – In partnership with Mint Artists Guild over this summer your Metroparks will be creating a coloring book for kids, those young at heart or those that love the Metroparks! Young-adult artist Natasha Guest from Mint Artists Guild is designing the coloring book that will feature four friends and their summer exploration of some of the 13 Metroparks. The friends will experience adventures, meet animals and create lasting memories on their explorations.
Building up to the release of the full coloring book in November, the Metroparks will release specific pages at pre-planned events or even virtually. The first release of a coloring book page will happen at the Family Campouts at Hudson Mills, Kensington, Lake Erie, Stony Creek, and Historic Fort Wayne in Detroit. So be sure to grab your pages at check-in and enter the coloring contest if you participate in a campout.
Future coloring page releases will be announced through social media and e-blasts!
