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 18th at 8pm join a naturalist at Routzong Preserve on Routzong Rd. just north of St. Rt. 571 to enjoy the full harvest moon. Remember to dress for the cooler evening temperatures and to bring a flashlight if you choose. In the event of cloudy skies, call the nature center to find out about possible cancellation. 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? The harvest moon provides more light for the farmers bringing in their crops at the end of the growing season.
