February Park P.A.L.S. Ask: Is it Spring Yet?

Harbinger-of-Spring, a very early native wildflower,
is also known as “salt and pepper” because of its distinctive bloom.
Darke County Park District invites children in kindergarten through 2nd grade to join them on February 13th from 9:30am to noon to search for signs of spring during Park P.A.L.S! This month everyone will meet at the Nature Center on St. Rt. 502 west of Greenville to prepare for the coming spring. Students will check the nest boxes at Shawnee Prairie to ensure they are ready for spring inhabitants and check the woods for early spring wildlife or flowers.

Park P.A.L.S. is a series of monthly programs designed for students of this age group who are interested in nature. P.A.L.S. stands for Practicing And Learning Stewardship, and its mission is to develop future earth stewards through meaningful educational opportunities and hands-on experiences in the natural world. A fee of $3 is charged for the program, and preregistration is required. For any questions about the Park P.A.L.S. program or any other Park District programs or to register for the February class, please call the Nature Center at (937) 548-0165.
