Waterfowl of Chestnut St. Marsh

A wood duck enjoys the wetlands
Join a naturalist on Monday, November 16th at 8am at Chestnut Street Marsh, near the model airfield driveway, to explore the interesting world of waterfowl. The marsh of Chestnut Street has a valuable ecosystem that offers a unique stopover location for many migrating birds. The surrounding levy has recently been cleared, and the hike will focus there. From there, hikers will explore the walk in entrance to Shawnee Prairie and see what the prairies have in store. The walk will cover the paved and mown trails around the marsh while searching for a wide variety of birds and other species as they prepare for the coming winter. Remember to dress for the weather, and use extreme caution when parking alongside the road. Meet the naturalist on the paved trail leading to the model airfield.

For any questions about this hike or any of the other programs offered by the Darke County Park District, please call the Nature Center at (937) 548-0165 or visit the website at
