A Stroll on the Prairie

While the prairies of Darke County no longer stretch for miles as they once did, there are still remnant prairie plots for us to “wonder” through. Join a Naturalist from the Darke County Park District for a leisurely walk through our “back 40” prairie at Shawnee Prairie Preserve on Thursday, August 9th at 7:00pm. This Naturalist-lead hike is completely free and there will be much to see! We will take a look at what flowers are in bloom, what birds are active and what butterflies are feeding. Dress for the weather, wear comfortable walking shoes, bring water, your binoculars and/or camera.

 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
