Help change lives outdoors.

We continue to celebrate the enormous impact our parks have on the lives of so many by providing opportunities to spend time in nature.

Your donations help ensure EVERYONE'S opportunity to be outdoors. With your help we are CHANGING LIVES OUTDOORS through important initiatives like these in Three Rivers Park District:

  • Adapted Recreation Programs - ensure access and inclusion to outdoor recreation for persons with physical or cognitive disabilities, including children, veterans, and seniors.
  • Pathways Internships - provide youth and young adults, particularly those facing barriers to employment, hands-on experiences to explore a career in parks and recreation.
  • Explorer Camps & Programs - provide outdoor recreation and nature education experiences to under-represented communities, to ensure that no child will be turned away for lack of funds
