Darke County Parks Completes Digital Signage Project

Darke County Parks Director Roger Van Frank and Volunteer Coordinator/Naturalist Kathi McQueen are proud of the new signage at the Nature Center.
Recently the Darke County Park District completed a project incorporating technology and greener practices into its daily operations. Through the generous support from the Ami McClurkin Community Fund administered by the Darke County Foundation, Darke County Parks was able to purchase a large flat screen television equipped with software to display photos, advertise upcoming events, and display the daily program schedule. Not only does this project save physical resources, but because it can be updated from an office PC, it also is much less labor intensive requiring far fewer staff hours to keep up to date, freeing up more time for educational pursuits. The Nature Center has over 50,000 visitor occasions each year, and all of those visitors use the digital display every day that the park offices are open to stay informed about daily programing and upcoming special events. The Darke County Park District would like to thank the Ami McClurkin Community Fund and the Darke County Foundation for their generous support to make this project come to fruition.
