2019 Key Partner Award – Ottawa Parks and Recreation


Dan: Hi, I’m Dan O’Keefe and I nominated
Ottawa County Parks and Recreation for a Key Partner award. We’ve done a lot
with them over the years, everything from educational programming at their Nature
Center, to developing a Master Naturalist program that helped train parks
volunteers to take it to the next level of really participating in stewardship
parks lands. It’s really a one-of-a-kind art system at the county level in my
mind. Jason:>>Well it’s hand in hand, we’re reaching out to the same people, the same constituents and customers. And I was a
4-H kid, so I was in 4-H for nine years I think, and it really goes hand-in-hand,
the educational component engaging the community whether it’s at 4-H, or
gardening, or the Master Naturalist program. It’s all right so we have the
facilities and the parks and the educational component, and then utilizing
the professional resources that MSU brings to the table really is of
expertise and then building the volunteer base too. you you
