Make a Difference Day

National Make A Difference Day is an annual community service event held on the fourth Saturday in October.  

A small effort by an individual or group of individuals can create change in their local neighborhood. Make a Difference Day was established to help encourage us to take one day a year to try to make a difference in the world.

Originally created in 1992 by USA Weekend magazine, Make a Difference Day has received a great deal of support from various organizations for over two decades, and at Five Rivers MetroParks this is our big Fall volunteer event to close out the season at some of our 18 Parks,11 conservation areas, and along the trails we manage.
