On All Saints Day, November 1st at 5:30pm, join Darke County Parks at Greenville Union Cemetery to pay respect to local history and to check out a birding hotspot. From philanthropist Fred Coppock to the county’s early pioneers and from six US Congressmen to the only man ever legally hanged in Darke County, these names have quite the stories to tell. While we wander back in time, we’ll also keep an eye out for late fall migrating birds and arriving winter residents. Whether you’re a birder, a history buff, or both, bring your binoculars for this quiet evening hike through the cemetery. Meet at the cemetery office on the corner of West St. and Main St. in Greenville, and dress for the weather. Registration is requested for this event; to do so or for any questions about this or other park programs, please call the nature center at (937) 548-0165.
Did you know?- In many different traditions All Saints Day and All Souls Day are times of reflection and remembrance for the dearly departed.
