School Program Request

Darke County Parks’ outdoor and in-classroom programs are designed to enhance Ohio’s curriculum standards and incorporate inquiry-based learning activities. Through hands-on exploration, students are encouraged to make discoveries about the natural world and evaluate their findings.

When you click "Reserve" you will need to fill in a simple "Description of Use" and "Group Size". Please use "In-school or Field Trip request" and your group size here. There will be a form immediately after that which will require full class details and program topic/theme offerings for you to make your full request. You can also request more specific times on this form.

** By default, the system will not allow any requests sooner than 14 days from now. Likewise, these requests run from January to December of the current year. If you need to make a request that occurs sooner or further in the future than that, please call us at 937-548-0165

Restrooms will be available as needed but is requested that group sizes be limited to the number of stalls in each restroom, not the entire class.
