Join Darke County Parks for their spring hiking series as they explore the sensations of spring. Each week of Spring brings a new wave of wildflowers to the forest floor of Coppess. On Wednesday, April 19th at 6pm join a naturalist to see what’s blooming at Coppess Nature Sanctuary located on Young Rd. one half mile south of St. Rt. 47 between Ansonia and Union City. Who knows what the season’s weather will bring, so keep the conditions in mind when you dress for the hike. The hike will continue rain or shine, but please wear boots for the mud if it has been rainy. For more information about this or any of the other exciting hikes in this season’s series or other park district programs, please call the Nature Center at (937) 548-0165.
