Darke County Parks receives Schaurer Grant

Recently the Darke County Park District received a grant from the Lydia E. Schaurer Memorial Trust. The funds went toward purchasing a new professional laminator for the park office. The laminator will enable the naturalists to create polished looking teaching materials that can be used again and again. The new Naturalist in the Classroom program, which brings Darke County Parks naturalists into local schools multiple times a year, will utilize the laminator for almost all their educational programs. From lectures, to hikes, to classroom visits, the laminator will help the Darke County Park District to reuse materials and leave a smaller footprint on the earth. They would like to thank the Lydia E. Schaurer Memorial Trust for awarding them the grant and encourage all Darke County residents to be mindful of the impact they have on the earth. Everyone should reuse and recycle as much as possible to protect our fragile ecosystem for the stewards of tomorrow.

For information about the Naturalist in the Classroom program or any other program offered by the Park District, please call the Nature Center at (937) 548-0165 or visit the website at
