Friends of Hamilton County Parks

2018 Annual Sustaining Campaign

Many of us spent our childhood exploring the local creeks, woodlots, and fields within walking distance of our homes. It shaped us, made us who we are today. But for most kids now, those opportunities don’t exist. Many wild places in our community have been replaced by suburban development.

We invite you to support the Friends of Hamilton County Parks as we work to ensure all members of our community have the same access to amazing spaces, whether they are children or adults.

Hamilton County residents deserve the highest quality outdoor spaces for play and exploration; Hamilton County seniors deserve safe, well-maintained spaces for recreation and relaxation and Hamilton County families deserve beautiful places to come together to connect and grow.

A recent conversation with a community member struck a chord when she pointed out the straight-line connection between her passion for nature and parks and her childhood experiences.

“I grew up out-of-doors, creek stomping along the White River with my cousins and searching for crawdads, frogs, freshwater mussel shells, and baby catfish. Our family vacations were spent visiting state and national parks across the country, panning for gold, rock hunting, and identifying leaves and trees with my dad.”

Thankfully, we still have parks. We need them—now more than ever—for our own health, for our children’s health, and for the health of our environment. And we need your help in making them the best parks possible. Your generous donation will be put to great use to positively impact your community and keep the parks green and growing for tomorrow. Please join us today.

Warmest regards,

John Scott Foster, PhD, Executive Director

Parks. A necessity, not a nicety.
