CONTRIBUTE

 

The Park District maintains the Barnes Preserve on donations. Our work is made possible through generous donations from organizations, businesses, and individuals. We do NOT receive funding from the county to operate the current park (Barnes Preserve) or future parks as grants do not normally include monies for operational use.

Interested in helping Wayne County Park District reach its goals? Consider making a donation today!
