Natural Awakenings News: Daily Entry Passes Available for Michigan Public Libraries Card Holders

Metropark daily entry passes are now available for cardholders of all Michigan public libraries to “check out,” free for the day. The Huron-Clinton Metroparks, consisting of 13 parks in and around Livingston, Macomb, Oakland, Washtenaw and Wayne counties, have joined the Michigan Activity Pass (MAP) program. The MAP program provides free or discounted admission to more than 450 historic sites, cultural attractions, state parks and campgrounds. With the Metroparks’ participation, patrons can check out a daily vehicle park pass to visit their preferred Metropark location.

“Public libraries play such an important role in our communities. That’s why we’re thrilled to join the MAP program and launch this new partnership with the Michigan Library Network,” explains Metroparks Director Amy McMillan. “Our goal is to help ensure more Michiganders can experience all the different sites and attractions our park system has to offer. We urge library patrons to 'check us out.’” McMillan added that participation in the MAP program is one of many efforts that the Metroparks is making to help remove barriers to access and bolster equitable outdoor recreation opportunities for all.
