The air is crisp, and mosquitoes are a thing of the past. It’s time to hike! Autumn can provide the best time to get out doors, and Darke County Parks has a variety of walking programs to offer. To kick off the season, meet a naturalist for a goldenrods and asters hike on September 1st at 6pm at Turkeyfoot Preserve on Bishop Rd. just off of State Route 121 South of Greenville. Participants will explore the stunning colors of these fall-blooming flowers. 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.
Did you know?- Canada Goldenrod is typically one of the first plants to colonize an area after disturbance (such as fire) and rarely persists once shrubs and trees become established.
