Who Are the Friends of Metea?

The Friends of Metea is a tax exempt charitable organization whose purpose is to help preserve the natural features of Metea County Park, to raise funds to facilitate its development as a park and nature preserve, to promote its use as an educational center, and to coordinate volunteer efforts. Friends of Metea is operated by a board of directors who work in partnership with the Allen County Park Board. Membership in Friends of Metea is open to all interested citizens.

Board meetings are held the third Thursday of each month, at 4:00 pm, at the Nature Center in Metea Park; no meeting in July and December.

In September, the meeting is replaced with the annual picnic - bring hotdogs, buns, drink, table service, and a dish to share.

All are welcome at board meetings and picnic. Come join us!

Having worked with this group of people for over 10 years, I would recommend anyone who has a love for the outdoors and wants to be a part of passing it on to the next generation to check it out. One of my favorite experiences has been being a trail guide for preschooler and early elementary groups. I also learn alot from my fellow trailguides and the naturalists as we have training opportunities several times a year.
