GREENVILLE – Water. It is crucial to individuals’ survival and when they are hiking. Whether Darke County Parks or Glacier National Park, individuals always should carry their water bottles.

But what if you are on a long hike and need to refill along the trail?

Community members can join a naturalist at 1 p.m. Oct. 27 at the new Bish Discovery Center (404 N. Ohio St., Greenville) to learn the tools and techniques to filter water on the trail. This informative, hands-on class will allow individuals a chance to get familiar with common methods and feel confident that when they are on the trail, they will have access to potable water. This class may require some short-distance walking and kneeling may be encouraged.

Registration is required for this free event. For questions about this or any other park district programs or to register for the class, call 548-0165.
