Mill Creek MetroParks Ford Nature Center receives $1 million gift

The Sand Hill Foundation has gifted the Mill Creek MetroParks Ford Nature Center with a $1 million challenge grant.

The grant will cover one-third of the $3 million campaign that was launched to renovate the 106-year-old Robinson Mansion, which is home to the Ford Nature Center.

The estate was gifted to Mill Creek MetroParks in 1968 by the late Judge John W. Ford. The site was soon transformed into the Ford Nature Center in 1972.

Chris Litton, the Mill Creek MetroParks Director of Development, finds this grant very generous.

“On behalf of the staff of the MetroParks and the board of directors of the Mill Creek MetroParks Foundation, I would like to express my gratitude to Susan Ford Dorsey for this generous gift,” said Litton.

Litton went on to say that he is very excited about the chance to educate future generations and continue the legacy of the Ford family.
