Friends of the Darke County Parks Field Trip Grant Received

Megan Delk, Greenville Kindergarten teacher, is the lucky recipient of the first-ever grant awarded from the Friends of Darke County Parks for field trip transportation costs.  Through the efforts of Mrs. Delk and generosity of the Friends of Darke County Parks, all Greenville Kindergarteners explored animal adaptations at Shawnee Prairie Preserve at absolutely zero cost to the Greenville City School District. 

All Darke County schools are encouraged to bring their classes to Darke County Parks for engaging, hands-on exploration at no cost to the students.  However, schools still have to incur the costs for transportation to and from the park.  The Friends of Darke County Parks are consistently working with the staff to make our parks more accessible for all students.  The Friends of the Parks received a generous amount from the Harry D. Stephens Memorial Fund and made the decision to offer those funds to schools for bussing costs.  Mrs. Delk filled out the application, which can be found on the parks' website at, and was awarded the amount needed to cover the transportation.  This is just one more opportunity for schools who have limited funds and field trips to take advantage of the programs Darke County Parks offer.  For more information or for an application for a future field trip, please contact Darke County Parks at 937-548-0165 or
