The Darke County Park District invites the public to join them every Tuesday morning at 8am at Shawnee Prairie Preserve for their Early Morning Discovery Hikes. These hikes allow adults a chance to watch the seasons change and to discover the many life forms in their own backyard. Invigorating autumn morning air makes this a great time to enjoy and learn about nature. These walks focus on bird watching, tree identification, animal tracks, and much more. Attendees are asked to bring a pair of binoculars if possible; otherwise some are available for loan. Remember to dress for the weather. Hikes will be held no matter the weather. If you have any questions about the Early Morning Discovery Hikes or any other program offered by the park district, please call the nature center at (937) 548-0165.
Did you know? Autumn is a great time of year to watch spider webs of shapes and sizes appear throughout the prairie.
