With over 4,500 acres of preserved land and 10 parks open daily to park customer/owners, MetroParks serves as Butler County's large local greenspace provider.
MetroParks also operates as an organization focused on facilitating projects that make a positive economic impact on the region.
These two initiatives, as well as being true to our core mission of conservation, education and recreation is enhanced when mutually beneficial long-term relationships are established with partners, collaborators, and sponsors.
Participation can come in many forms, including providing outside dollars to accomplish capital improvements, as well as in-kind donations to facilitate a wide variety of enhancements to facilities and programming.
Contributions can be tailored to fit every desired level of giving.
