Time change made in hike

GREENVILLE — The Darke County Park District invites the public to join them every Tuesday at the warmer weather start time of 8 a.m. at Shawnee Prairie Preserve for their Early Morning Discovery Hikes.

The air is alive with bird song, and the ground is blanketed with colorful blooms. Spring rejuvenates the winter weary soul. These hikes allow adults a chance to watch the seasons change and to discover the many life forms in their own backyard. Attendees are asked to bring a pair of binoculars if possible; otherwise some are available for loan.

Remember to dress for the weather. Hikes will be held no matter the weather.

If there are any questions about the Early Morning Discovery Hikes or any other program offered by the park district, call the Nature Center at 937-548-0165 or visit the website at www.darkecountyparks.org.
