Darke County Parks is hosting a series of fitness programs called Naturally Fit occurring the fourth Monday of every month. Everyone wants to lead healthier lives and spend more time outdoors. However, workout machines aren’t always environmentally friendly, and gyms aren’t very exciting. Besides, sometimes life just gets in the way! Use these programs as an “excuse” to schedule time outside and get moving. Each of these programs focuses more on fitness than nature, with everyone moving at their own pace, whether that’s one loop or ten. The October program will take place October 24th at 4:30pm at Shawnee Prairie Preserve which has more than two miles of trails through woods and mature prairies. The park is located on State Route 502 West just outside of Greenville. Meet there, and don’t forget to bring a water bottle.
