Darke County Park District invites children in kindergarten through 2nd grade to join them on March 25th from 10am to 12pm at the Shawnee Prairie Nature Center to explore the Natural Play Zone during Park P.A.L.S! They encourage students to bring their sense of adventure. Working together, they will design and build a fort using natural materials. Once that is accomplished, the group can creatively use the structure for unstructured play. Please remember to dress for the weather.
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 $3 fee 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 March class, please call the Nature Center at (937) 548-0165.
