“Hello everyone, I’m former Governor Bob Taft, Chair of the Ohio State Parks Foundation, and we’re here today at Alum Creek State Park.

And I’m Hope Taft, and I love the Ohio State Parks.

We’d like to encourage you to support our Parks, as well, during this season of giving.

You know, we have so many memories tied up in the Ohio State Parks. Whether it’s biking or hiking or camping, canoeing or boating or fishing or swimming, there is something that we all can do.

The Ohio State Parks Foundation is working every day to enhance our parks by funding projects that will improve your visits to the parks for you and your entire family. Help us today by making a donation to our Annual Campaign.

We have great plans in the coming year as we celebrate the 75th Anniversary of Ohio State Parks. We’d love to have you as a member of our team. Thanks and Happy Holidays to you and your family!”

Help make memories possible for ALL. Donate to the Ohio State Parks Foundation today!
