The Great Pumpkin Hunt at Darke County Parks

Pumpkins, pumpkins everywhere! Looking for an alternative to scary Halloween events? Enjoy a new twist on an annual favorite! The Great Pumpkin Hunt is still an opportunity to explore the woods on a crisp fall day, but this year will be a little different; instead of clues on the map, families will focus on exploring the trails in search of orange-colored tricks OR treat. Don’t forget to stop by the pumpkin patch on the hill top behind the Nature Center to pick your pumpkin. You can take it home to carve, or paint it in the Nature Center. Children are encouraged to wear a costume!

The Great Pumpkin Hunt is fun for the whole family and will take place on October 20th at 1pm at Shawnee Prairie Preserve located at 4267 St. Rt. 502 west of Greenville. Registration is required, and a $6 fee is charged. To register for this fun fall event, call the Nature Center at (937) 548-0165.

To find out more about the other programs offered by the Darke County Park District, call the office, check out the website at, or visit the Nature Center Monday-Saturday 9am-5pm.
