The air is crisp, and mosquitoes are a thing of the past. It’s time to get outside. Autumn offers some of the absolute best hiking in Darke County. On Monday November 14th at 5:30pm join a naturalist at Eidson Woods Preserve on the corner of Palestine-Union City Rd. and St. Rt. 502 West of Greenville. Hikers may experience all sorts of sights and sounds not found during the daylight hours. With any luck the full beaver moon will be shining bright, but flashlights might prove useful if it is not such a clear night. Remember to dress for the weather as things are turning colder. For more information about this hike, weather updates, or information about any other program offered by the Darke County Parks, please call the nature center at (937) 548-0165.
Did you know? The beaver moon gets its name because, for both the European settlers and native tribes, this was the time to set beaver traps before the swamps froze, to ensure a supply of warm winter furs.
