DCP Monarch Mania Date Change

Monarch Mania at Darke County Parks originally scheduled for September 5th at 2pm will now take place on September 12th at 2pm at the Nature Center. Darke County Parks apologizes for any inconvenience but still invites everyone out to learn more about monarchs. The story of the monarch butterfly could be written as a miraculous tale. Their journey to Mexico along with their beauty have captured the hearts of many. In 2013, their population decreased dramatically due to several factors. In the Midwest, and particularly here in Darke County, we play a crucial role in preserving the habitat needed for monarch survival. Head out to Shawnee Prairie Preserve Nature Center on St. Rt. 502 west of Greenville on Saturday, September 12th at 2pm for an afternoon devoted to exploring more about monarch butterflies. For any questions about this or any other programs, please call the Nature Center at 548-0165.
