Give me shelter. Many people spend a fair amount of time outdoors, and while many do not choose to camp during the cold winter months, it’s nice to know how to set up a shelter in the event of an emergency while on the trails. Join Darke County Parks as they welcome back Rob Simpson from the Canteen Shop for a winter shelter building course on Saturday, January 7th at 12pm at Shawnee Prairie. Remember call the Nature Center to register and to dress for the weather because participants will be outside for the duration of this free survival course. To register for the Winter Survival Shelters course or for more information about this or any other exciting program, please call the Nature Center at (937) 548-0165.
Did you know? A pile of pine boughs is not only a great insulator from the cold, but makes for a springy and comfortable emergency bed.
