Greenville – June 30, 2018: Darke County Parks naturalist will host a free program to the public on the basics of butterfly gardening. Join us on June 30th at 3pm as we explore which plants attract the most butterflies, as well as other tricks to keep these important pollinators thriving. Did you know some butterflies take in minerals through a behavior called “puddling”? Learn about this and other habits to provide a suitable space for your garden visitors. We will discover which flowers and structures will have butterflies and other native pollinators returning again and again to your garden.

Interested in learning more about the Darke County Parks and our special programs? Visit the parks website at or sign up to receive your quarterly copy of the Nature Notes Newsletter. Included in each newsletter is a listing of the upcoming programs, informative articles from the naturalist educators and/or director and special programming information. You can also visit the parks headquarters at Shawnee Prairie Preserve located at 4267 State Rout 502 in Greenville, OH. The nature center and office hours are Monday through Saturday 9-5, closed on Sundays.

We strive to maintain and protect the unique natural and cultural areas of Darke County for future generations. We hope you will join us this summer and many seasons to come!
