Welcome to CHIP-IN! for Parks

Girl in Red Shirt Shoveling at CHIP-in Event by Duck Pond in Point Defiance Park Got a minute?
Last year, volunteers for Metro Parks chipped in 2.7 million minutes to maintain and care for our parks.

Equivalent to 45,000 hours, volunteer time equates to just under an additional $1 million annually in services that benefit our parks and every effort contributes to our prize winning system!
