History hike set for Jr. Naturalists


GREENVILLE — Darke County Parks invites students in grades 3-6 to join them for Saturday’s Jr. Naturalists program from 9:30 a.m. to noon at Prairie Ridge Meadow near the Garst Museum in Greenville.

Every corner of this county is bursting with history, and the parks are no exception. Students will check out Prairie Ridge Meadow and Tecumseh Point discovering why it is important not only in the county’s history but also in the nation’s history.

The Jr. Naturalists program is a series of monthly programs designed to give students a hands-on introduction to natural resource management. Hikes, work projects, and independent study are all part of this fun-filled nature study club. A fee of $3 is charged for the program, and preregistration is required.

For any questions about the Jr. Naturalists program or any other park district programs or to register for the September class, call the park office at 937-548-0165 or email info@darkecountyparks.org.
