Staff report



A pile of pine boughs is not only a great insulator from the cold, but makes for a springy and comfortable emergency bed.

DARKE COUNTY — Learn about Winter Survival Shelters with Darke County Parks’ “Give me shelter.”

Many people spend a fair amount of time outdoors, and while many do not choose to camp during the cold winter months, it’s nice to know how to set up a shelter in the event of an emergency while on the trails.

Join Darke County Parks as they welcome back Rob Simpson from the Canteen Shop in Greenville for a winter shelter building course on Saturday, Jan. 7, at 12 p.m. at Shawnee Prairie Preserve & Nature Center.

Remember to call the Nature Center to register and to dress for the weather because participants will be outside for the duration of this free survival course. To register for the Winter Survival Shelters course or for more information about this or any other exciting program, please call the Nature Center at 937-548-0165.
