Winter’s brisk weather brings with it unique beauty. Join Darke County Parks to seek out these seasonal sights and hiking opportunities. On December 31st at 9am join a naturalist at Shawnee Prairie Preserve just west of Greenville on St. Rt. 502 to explore the world of winter birds. The program will begin with a quick presentation on possible bird species, and then participants will take a bird hike and enjoy the bird window in the Nature Center. Remember to dress for the weather. In the event of severe weather, 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.
