Darke County Park District invites children in kindergarten through 2nd grade to join them on January 14th from 10am to 12pm at the Shawnee Prairie Nature Center to explore birds during Park P.A.L.S! Who is gathered at the Nature Center’s warm and cozy bird window this winter? Are they here year round, or do they migrate? Learn the answers to this and more as students play games and do a craft while watching our feathered friends feast from the feeders.
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 registration is required. For any questions about the Park P.A.L.S. program or any other park district programs or to register for the January class, please call the Nature Center at (937) 548-0165.
Did you know? The Red-bellied Woodpecker is often mistakenly called the “Red-headed” Woodpecker, but while the Red-bellied has a patch of red on its head, the Red-headed Woodpecker’s whole head is red.
