DCP Volunteer in the Spotlight = James Normile

Each quarter, the Darke County Parks recognizes one of their exceptional volunteers. This volunteer gets a spot in the quarterly newsletter, as well as a plaque on the Volunteer Hall of Fame board which can be viewed at the Shawnee Prairie Preserve Nature Center. 

This season’s volunteer in the spotlight goes to James Normile, a senior at Greenville High School with a passion for animals and the outdoors. James will soon be moving on to major in Zoology at Miami University, but in the meantime he has been building volunteer experience with Darke County Parks’ animal ambassadors at Shawnee Prairie Nature Center. His favorite thing about volunteering with the animals is, “watching the animals follow their instincts.” When he is not volunteering, James enjoys adventuring with his scout group and repairing old cars. James would love to see an expansion to animal care volunteer opportunities as well as more virtual programming in the future. Everyone at the Darke County Parks would like to say “Thank you, James!”
