Nature Day!

What better time to celebrate nature than Earth Day weekend? Join the Darke County Parks on Saturday, April 20th from 10:00am-2:00pm for Nature Day. This day will be packed with activities to remind us of the wondrous planet that we all call home. From the tiniest insect living under a log to raptors soaring above, Shawnee Prairie Preserve will be aflutter with information and activities for all ages. Children will have the opportunity to have their “passport” stamped at each station for a prize. There will also be hikes and programs scheduled throughout the day. Our newest Animal Ambassadors, Joseph the Red-Tailed Hawk and Greta the Great Horned Owl will be on hand ready to meet and greet with you! Come on out to Shawnee Prairie Preserve (4267 St. Rt. 502 West) to Discover (or re-discover) what your Darke County Parks has to offer!

Refreshments will be available for purchase from the Friends of the Darke County Parks. For more information on Nature Day, call the Nature Center at 937.548.0165 or visit our website at
