Darke County Parks Volunteer Workshop

Do you have a case of cabin fever? You must be ready to get out and VOLUNTEER with Darke County Parks. The Park District will be holding a Volunteer Workshop at Shawnee Prairie Preserve Nature Center on Saturday, February 7th beginning at 9:30AM. All are invited.

We will begin the workshop exploring all the Darke County Parks has to offer and take a glimpse of all our parks, trails, and projects we have planned for the year. The volunteer opportunities are endless and everyone can find their own niche while volunteering at Darke County Parks. Our volunteer opportunities include adopting- a- park, animal and raptor care, prairie gardening, heirloom gardening, hosting the Log House or Blacksmith Shop, assisting with visiting educational school programs, area maintenance and so much more! We also are in need of volunteers to help with our annual special events such as Maple Syrup Festival, Nature Day, Prairie Days and the Winter Wonderland Walk. We will wrap-up the workshop mingling from one station to the next exploring the volunteer opportunities you may be interested in and yes all the stations will be indoors.

As the Parks volunteer coordinator, I understand our lives are busy and we already have several commitments. However, I am asking everyone to look at their schedules in hopes, 2015 will be the year you and your family will be available to volunteer. If you already volunteer, bring a Friend. Meet new friends and join a group that truly makes a difference to thousands of lives each year.

Not sure if volunteering is for you? Come and visit the workshop on Saturday, February 7th and see what opportunities are available at Darke County Parks.

RSVP by February 5th to Laura Schwieterman, Darke County Parks Volunteer Coordinator. 937-548-0165/ .

Hope to see you in the Parks soon.
