DCP hosting Great Pumpkin Hunt

The Darke County Park’s Great Pumpkin Hunt will begin October 24th.  Please note the pumpkin hunt will be a different format this year due to group size limitations.

The Great Pumpkin Hunt will take place at your own pace over a two week period. A pumpkin will be 'hidden' at 4 different parks including Eidson, Coppess, Worth and Routzong. Inside each pumpkin will be a stamp for your passport! Once you register, we will email you a PDF of the

"Pumpkin Passport".  You have two weeks to visit each park, 4 total, find the pumpkin, stamp the passport and return it to us. Once your mission is complete, we will have fall-themed goodies for your family to pick up at the Nature Center at Shawnee Prairie Preserve.

This year, the Great Pumpkin Hunt will take children on a scavenger hunt throughout the Districts preserves in search of a pumpkin container!  Park staff will email all participants the week of October 19 with detailed directions.  Participants who do not have a printer, can pick up the passport at nature center, Bish discovery center, or have it mailed.

Questions?  Call the Nature Center at 937-548-0165.

Registration is required and can be completed on line at
