ASHLAND COUNTY PARK DISTRICT ANNOUNCES 100% OF FUNDS RAISED FOR OUTDOOR EDUCATION CENTER
Ashland County Park District (ACPD) announced today that 100% of the funds needed to help build the Davy McClure Outdoor Education Center in TK Park have been raised.
Ashland County Park District director Eric Schneider & Ashland County Park District Commissioner Bob DeSanto were excited to show this goal has been reached.
In 2022, local philanthropists Bob and Jan Archer committed $250,000 to help fund the project and challenged the community to raise the additional $250,000 to help make it a reality.
Construction cost have raised significantly since the fundraising began, so funds are still needed.
Tax-deductible gifts to the Davy McClure Outdoor Education Center will help ACPD continue Davy McClure’s vision of having an education center/pavilion for the residents of Ashland County. Highlights of Davy McClure Outdoor Education Center include:
· Three season shelter/pavilion
· Bio-diverse educational habitats
· Flushable restrooms
· School bus accessible parking lot
100% of your donation to the Davy McClure Outdoor Education Center will go to supporting this project.
Community members interested in donating can call the park office at (419) 289-3524 or bring donations into the park offices at 1301 Park Street in Ashland. Please make checks payable to “Friends of the ACPD.”
