Nature Day on Its Way

An annual favorite is coming soon. Darke County Parks is celebrating Earth Day week once again with Nature Day! Shawnee Prairie Preserve will be buzzing with activities on Saturday, April 25 from 10a-3p. A celebration of nature will take place throughout the day. Families are encouraged to plan to spend most of the day exploring each station. Children will be given a passport that may be stamped at the completion of each activity station. Upon completing all stations, an award will be given to the participant. Hands-on stations planned for the day include; honeybees, rocks, wildflowers, wetlands, mud, nature literature and more!

At noon, a concert by Chris Rowlands, Naturalist Educator and Musician, will be located on the stage. The Friends of Darke County Park will be offering a hot dog lunch for a donation. In addition to all of the wonderful family hands-on exploration, the Native Plant Sale will also be occurring beginning at 10am until sold out. For more information, please contact the Nature Center at 937-548-0165.
