Darke County Park District invites children in kindergarten through 2nd grade to join them on September 17th from 10am to noon to explore pollinators during Park P.A.L.S! Butterflies, bees, and more! Students will discover the importance of pollinators while they hike the trails and get up close and with these winged wonders. Participants will also do a cool craft, so kids are encouraged to bring their creativity, sense of adventure, and a friend!
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 preregistration is required. For any questions about the Park P.A.L.S. program or any other Park District programs or to register for the September class, please call the Nature Center at (937) 548-0165.
