  1. I have hiked at numerous parks but can never seem to find a ranger to stamp my book. How can I get credit for the parks?

    1. Hi, Lori. It’s an honor system, so when you see a ranger at another park, you can have them stamp for various parks. You can call the park’s ranger cell phone to get ahold of a ranger or park staff. Thanks!

  2. I love the metro parks and even volunteer. I am not on Facebook and was wondering why programs aren’t being posted on the metro park websites.

    1. Hi, Chevy. Thanks so much for volunteering and supporting Metro Parks. Due to current gathering limits, we are not able to have more than 10 people at a program. We also need to know who is attending each program in case of contact tracing needs. To keep numbers down and ensure we have contact information for participants, we are using Sign Up Genius for program registration via a compiled email list that you can sign up for through a link on Facebook. Each park has their own email list that receives these notices for programs and registration. If you want to receive these emails, send us the list of parks you would like to be added to and we will help get you added. We don’t currently advertise the programs on the website because we don’t want to have too many people show up for the limited programs. Thanks!
