Darke County Parks is hosting a series of fitness programs called Naturally Fit occurring the fourth Monday of every month. Everyone wants to lead healthier lives and spend more time outdoors. However, workout machines aren’t always environmentally friendly, and gyms aren’t very exciting. Besides, sometimes life just gets in the way! Use these programs as an “excuse” to schedule time outside and get moving. Each of these programs focuses more on fitness than nature, with everyone moving at their own pace, whether that’s one loop or ten. The August program will take place August 22nd at 6:30pm at Turkeyfoot Preserve with a one and a half mile loop trail through mature prairie. Meet at this easy to get to park on Bishop Rd. off Ohio 121 South to walk off some of that fair food, and bring a water bottle.
Did you know? The name “Turkeyfoot” come from a common nickname for big blue stem prairie grass which tips look like a wild turkey’s foot.
