The air is turning crisp, and mosquitoes are a thing of the past. It’s time to hike! We are entering one of the best times to get out doors, and Darke County Parks has a variety of walking programs to offer. On October 28th at 7:30am join a naturalist at Shawnee Prairie Preserve on St. Rt. 502 just west of Greenville for an early walk in the woods to enjoy fall colors, the morning sun’s glow, and hopefully some deer, coyotes, or other critters still out and about from their morning excursions. Remember to dress for the cooler morning temperatures. For more information about this or any of the other exciting hikes in this season’s series or other park district programs, please call the nature center at (937) 548-0165.
Did you know?- Animals that are most active in the early dawn and late dusk times are said to be crepuscular rather than nocturnal or diurnal.
