Friends Membership
Eaton County Parks relies heavily on volunteers for many of our programs and special events.  The Friends are called upon for help (volunteers) and support (financial) to provide special events and programs to the general public.
Members serve as a link to the community, provide volunteers, and help with fundraising.  "Thank you" to everyone who renewed their memberships.  We would not be able to do so many projects and programs without your support!
We need your help to continue to provide these worthwile programs and services.  Your contribution to the Friends through membership fees or by making charitable tax deductible donations helps to support and fund many of the the programs offered by  Eaton County Parks' Environmental Education Coordinator, Programmer, Operations Manager, and Naturalist, Jackie Blanc.
