Darke County Park District invites children in kindergarten through 2nd grade to join them on November 12th from 6pm to 8pm to explore owls during Park P.A.L.S! During this special night time edition of Park P.A.L.S., join a naturalist to explore the forest after dark in search of owls. Participants will listen to the owls distinct calls, and discover if they see the owls before the owls see them.
Park P.A.L.S. is a series of monthly programs designed for students of this age group who are interested in nature. P.A.L.S. stands for Practicing And Learning Stewardship, and its mission is to develop future earth stewards through meaningful educational opportunities and hands-on experiences in the natural world. A fee of $3 is charged for the program, and registration is required. For any questions about the Park P.A.L.S. program or any other park district programs or to register for the November class, please call the nature center at (937) 548-0165.
Did you know? A group of owls is called a parliament. This originates from C.S. Lewis’ description of a meeting of owls in The Chronicles of Narnia.
