Reptile Review for June Park P.A.L.S.

Darke County Park District invites children in kindergarten through 2nd grade to join them on June 11th from 10am to noon to discover all things reptiles during Park P.A.L.S! Please note the new 10:00 start time. This month everyone will meet at the Nature Center on St. Rt. 502 west of Greenville to learn what a reptile really is and which ones can be found in Darke County. Students will get up close with the Nature Center’s animal ambassadors and then they will walk the trail to search for these elusive creatures while discussing how they fit into the forest ecosystem.

Park P.A.L.S. is a series of monthly programs designed for students of this age group who are interested in nature. P.A.L.S. stands for Practicing And Learning Stewardship, and its mission is to develop future earth stewards through meaningful educational opportunities and hands-on experiences in the natural world. A fee of $3 is charged for the program, and preregistration is required. For any questions about the Park P.A.L.S. program or any other Park District programs or to register for the June class, please call the Nature Center at (937) 548-0165.

On sunny days, the midland brownsnake is a common sight on the asphalt and boardwalk trails around the Nature Center.
