UNION CITY, Ohio — The chilly winter weather brings with it unique hiking opportunities, and Darke County Parks is going to seize them.
On Feb. 22 at 6 p.m., join a naturalist at Worth Family Nature Preserve on Spring Hill Road, 2 1/2 miles north of State Route 502 for a winter night walk. This park features 1.2 miles of trails through 35 acres of hardwoods and pine plantation and prairies. The Greenville Creek on the east side of the park remains in its natural state having never been dredged or channelized.
“Who knows what the New Year’s weather will bring, so keep the conditions in mind when you dress for the hike,” organizers said. “Because this hike begins at sunset, flashlights may be useful but are not required.”
For more information about this or any of the other exciting hikes in this season’s series or other Park District programs, call the Nature Center at (937) 548-0165.
