Meet the Animal Ambassadors at DCP

From the tiny brown snake to the Great Horned Owl, Darke County Parks have many species waiting to meet you! Join a naturalist on Saturday, February 11th at 2pm to visit with the animals. Learn why these animals live at the Nature Center and what it takes to care for them on a daily basis. Find out why each is an important part of the ecosystem and how you can help keep them safe. Bring a friend and prepare to have an up-close encounter as you see (and possibly touch!) some of the most amazing native animals that call Darke County home. Remember to call the Nature Center for more information or to register for this free program at (937) 548-0165.

Did you know? Box Turtles get their name from their shell which has a hinge, enabling it to close completely, protecting the turtle from predators.
