Darke County Parks Upcoming Programs October 2021

Darke County Park District will be offering a variety of programs over the next several weeks: 


Stories by Fireside

Spend a crisp fall evening under the stars telling stories and making Milkyway s’mores while basking in the glow and warmth of the fire.


Full Hunter’s Moon Hike

October 19th at 7:30pm at Worth Family Nature Preserve

We’ll hike the trails by the light of the full moon; flashlights are not required but may prove useful. Join us at the above-designated park and dress for the weather.


Pick a Pumpkin Passport

October 9th-30th 

Starting on October 9th, the Pumpkin Passport will take place at your own pace over a three-week period. Inside each pumpkin will be a stamp for your passport! Once you register, we will email you a PDF of the “Pumpkin Passport”. Then you have three-weeks to visit each park, find the pumpkin, stamp the passport and return it to us. Once your mission is complete, we will have fall-themed goodies for your family to pick up at the Nature Center.


Great Pumpkin Hunt

October 23rd 1pm at Shawnee Prairie Preserve

This annual favorite returns! The Great Pumpkin Hunt, is the best opportunity for a non-scary Halloween experience while exploring the woods on a crisp fall day! Be sure to come in your best Halloween outfit for an added treat (or trick!).


Mushroom Meander

A change in perspective is all you need to enjoy the wonderful word of mushrooms. Take a hike with a naturalist to discover how many different species are living in the forest and where to find them.
