Canteen Shop owner to speak at Darke County Parks


Staff report



GREENVILLE — Darke County Parks welcomes Rob Simpson, owner of the Canteen Shop, to the Nature Center. The shop is currently located in The Palace building on Broadway, but will soon be moving to Third Street just off Broadway.

On Thursday at 6:30 p.m. Simpson will discuss his favorite everyday-carry (EDC) items and their importance.

Many people spend a fair amount of time outdoors, and while the usual items like a cell phone, wallet and keys are helpful, there are a wide range of additional tools on the market to help make life easier. Simpson will discuss the benefits of having these items on your person in the best, and worst, of times. In addition, he will discuss other options for preparedness tools used for winter hiking, driving, and living. Preregistration is required for this free night of survival education.

For more information about this program or any other park district program or to register, please give the Nature Center a call at 937-548-0165.
