Warbler Wandering and Butterfly Monitoring Every Saturday!

Looking for something to do on Saturdays? Why not head out to Shawnee Prairie Preserve to explore what the Nature Center and Park District has to offer. Would you like the opportunity to explore with a group and learn more about the world around you? Every Saturday morning in April, starting at 9:00am, Naturalists will lead a Wandering for Warblers hike. April is the beginning of Warbler Season! Grab those binoculars, your trusty field guide and let’s wander for warblers! Beginning and “expert” birders alike are encouraged to join in on these often 35+ bird species hikes. If birds aren’t your thing, we also have weekly Butterfly Monitoring hikes, Saturdays in April at 3:00pm. Not only will we enjoying spotting butterflies, but we will also be collecting scientific data! Join a Naturalist for this hike and help record all the butterflies you see on this pre-set route. Field guides will be provided. Both of these programs are completely free and a great way to kick off spring!

For more information on this and other programs offered by the Darke County Park District, call the Nature Center at 937.548.0165 or visit our website at We hope to see you outside, enjoying YOUR Darke County Parks!
