Youngsters can learn to recycle

GREENVILLE — P.A.L.S. Darke County Park District invites children in kindergarten through second grade to join them on Saturday from 10 a.m. to noon at the Shawnee Prairie Nature Center to explore recycling during Park P.A.L.S.

“Fall head over heels with saving the environment,” said organizers. “Explore how recycling works and ways you can reduce the amount you throw away. We will also learn how to reuse discarded items to make a cool craft.”

Park P.A.L.S. is a series of monthly programs designed for students of this age group who are interested in nature. P.A.L.S. stands for Practicing And Learning Stewardship, and its mission is to develop future earth stewards through meaningful educational opportunities and hands-on experiences in the natural world. A fee of $3 is charged for the program, and registration is required.

For any questions about the Park P.A.L.S. program or any other park district programs or to register for the class, call the Nature Center at 937-548-0165.
