Annual Nature Day Coming Soon

A fun filled family event is once again taking place at your Darke County Parks. The ever-popular Nature Day begins at 10am on Saturday, April 25. Bring the family to Shawnee Prairie Preserve to take part in a passport to adventure. Participants will receive a ‘passport’ that can be stamped at the completion of each station. Upon completion of all of the stations, a pair of binoculars will be awarded! Participants must take part in all of the activities at each station to earn their stamp. Some of the stations explorations included in this free event will be mud, honeybees, birds, dandelions, habitat healing, prairie plantings and more. Along with the stations a free concert begins at noon with Chris Rowlands, award winning singer, naturalist and educator. The Friends of Darke County Parks will be offering a hot dog lunch for a donation.

In addition, the Native Plant sale begins at 10am as well. Choose from a variety of native prairie and shade plants until sold out. For more information on this or any other Darke County Parks event, please contact the Nature Center at 937.548.0165.
