Make a Difference Day 2019

One day can make a difference!

make-a-difference-day-logoJoin us Saturday, Oct. 26 from 9 AM to noon for Make a Difference Day at Five Rivers MetroParks! Community members of all ages will work at various sites throughout Five Rivers MetroParks to help us clean up our parks and prepare for the winter season. Make a Difference Day is a great way to get outside and give back this October. Register your family, friends, or your work group and get everyone outside to make a difference!

Examples of past projects include:

National Make a Difference Day has been taking place for more than 20 years and has worked with millions of volunteers throughout the United States. Five Rivers MetroParks is a proud supporter of this event and has hosted projects over the last several years.

“Volunteers are an important part of our everyday operations at Five Rivers MetroParks,” said MetroParks Director of Parks and Conservation, Chris Pion. “Events such as Make-A-Difference-Day connect us to large numbers of volunteers in one day that allow us to plan and complete large-scale projects that would otherwise not be possible.  We are so thankful for the dedicated support that we receive from these wonderful volunteers.”

Wear suitable clothing for the weather and boots or thick-soled shoes. Note: Participants will not get in the water.

Registration for Make A Difference Day 2019 will open in early September.
