The Wichita Mountains Wildlife Refuge Offers Wildflower Walks in May
I have said it before and I will say it again. Oklahoma has some of the most beautiful wild flowers I have ever seen. I love taking my camera out and capturing the colors in the spring. You have an opportunity to see these beautiful wildflowers and learn about them with a guided tour.
The Wichita Mountains Wildlife Refuge will be conducting interpretive “Wildflower Walks” every Saturday in May. Reservations are required and are taken on a first-come, first-served basis by phoning the Visitor Center at 580-429-2151 between 8am and 6pm.
The tours will be conducted at 10am and will last approximately 3 hours. Due to the length of the program, children must be at least 8 years of age to participate. A $5 per person reservation fee will be collected at the time of check-in.The tour participants will board a bus and ride to several sites within the refuge, where short walks will be conducted to identify various types of wildflowers. Don’t forget your camera!
