Legacy Fund

Cleveland Metroparks Legacy Fund is an ideal opportunity for individuals and groups to support Cleveland Metroparks efforts to conserve and preserve its natural resources. Donations to the Legacy Fund support plant material to help create a welcome and healthy environment for wildlife and preserve the natural beauty of the “Emerald Necklace.” In addition to planting trees native to the region, Cleveland Metroparks plants native species of shrubs, grasses and wildflowers in all reservations each year.

Legacy Fund donations are also a meaningful way to honor a loved one, celebrate a special occasion or pay tribute to an individual while helping to conserve and enhance Cleveland Metroparks.

All donors and persons being honored or memorialized will be recognized in Cleveland Metroparks Emerald Necklace Newsletter and the annual Gift of Nature report.
