The Russ Matchett Society is an exclusive network of donors who have contributed major gifts of $5,000 or more to the Glade Run Lake Conservancy.


Members of the Russ Matchett Society are leading the way in protecting and expanding the 150 acres of preserved land currently comprising Glade Run Lake Park. Society members recognize Glade Run Lake Park as a special place for the community of southern Butler County to recreate and enjoy the beauty of nature.

Any organization or individual who wishes to join the Russ Matchett Society will be given special recognition as a Society member on the Glade Run Lake Conservancy website.
