Wild About Mammals for September Jr. Naturalists

Everything from the smallest rodent to the
largest whitetail, call Darke County home.
Darke County Parks Naturalist, Hannah Linebaugh, invites students in grades 3-6 to join her for the September Jr. Naturalists program on Saturday, September 19th from 2:00pm to 4:00pm at Shawnee Prairie Preserve on St. Rt. 502 west of Greenville. Please note that the special time differs from usual. The Jr. Naturalists program is a series of monthly programs designed to give students a hands-on introduction to natural resource management. Hikes, work projects, and independent study are all part of this fun-filled nature study club. The September program will feature mammals. While we may not often get to see many wild mammals, we can find clues to their behavior. We’ll look for signs, examine furs, bones, and droppings as we go wild about mammals. A fee of $3 is charged for the program, and preregistration is required. For any questions about the Jr. Naturalists program or any other Park District programs or to register for the September class, please call 548-0165 or email Hannah Linebaugh at
