On Juneteenth, we reflect on how far our nation has come, and how far we have to go. At Metroparks Toledo, we are listening, learning and eager to be part of a better future.

Our highest priority is to place a Metropark within five miles of every residence in Lucas County, because nature belongs to everyone and everyone benefits from a cleaner, greener community.

On this historical day, we add our voice to the chorus heard across the USA when we say, emphatically,

BLACK LIVES MATTER
