Walkin’ in a Winter Wonderland!

This Holiday Season, join Darke County Parks for an evening stroll through our Winter Wonderland at Shawnee Prairie Preserve! On Saturday, December 6th from 6-9pm, there will be over 400 luminaries lighting your way along the wooded trails, allowing for a peaceful winter’s night in nature. As you hike along the illuminated trails towards the Log House and Blacksmith Shop, you can enjoy the crisp air, bright stars and perhaps the light crunch of snow. This early December evening will also provide a full moon to light our way.

In the Log House, the fire will be warm and there will be the opportunity to enjoy pioneer music of Christmas’ past as you relax in the comforts of the 18th century. Holiday crafts for all ages will be available upstairs in the Log House and in the Nature Center to fuel the memories of this staff-favorite event. The Gift Shop will be open throughout the event, offering a chance to discover a selection of unique gifts or that perfect holiday stocking stuffer.

Walkin’ in a Winter Wonderland is a FREE event and is the perfect opportunity for families to celebrate the winter season and to start a new tradition. Don’t forget to bring a votive candle or two as a donation for next year’s path. Shawnee Prairie is located on 502 West, approximately 1 mile outside of Greenville. Call if you need directions around the detour. For more information on all of the programs offered by the Darke County Parks, visit our website at www.darkecountyparks.org or call the Nature Center at 937.548.0165.
