Summer is here; let’s explore! The hot days and long, warm evenings of summer make it a great time to explore the natural world. On Monday, June 20th at 9pm join a naturalist at Shawnee Prairie Preserve west of Greenville on St. Rt. 502 for an exciting summer walk. The hike starts late, hopefully the skies will clear to walk the trails of Shawnee by the light of the Full Strawberry Moon. Who knows what the weather will bring, so keep the conditions in mind when you dress for the hike. Because this hike begins at sunset, flashlights may be useful but are not required. 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.
