Spring Migration Tours at Hackberry Flat
6:00 PM to 8:00 PM
The wetland at Hackberry Flat is managed to provide migrating shorebirds and waterfowl a place to re-fuel and rest. Visitors will tour the wetland in a seated, open-air trailer and learn how to identify shorebirds and other wetland-dependent bird species. Binoculars and spotting scopes are available if needed. Please be sure to dress for the weather. There is no fee but reservations are required. Due to the length of the tours and type of transportation, children must be at least 8 years old to participate. Hackberry Flat is owned and managed by the OK Dept. of Wildlife Conservation and therefore visitors are required, unless exempt, to have a current hunting or fishing license or a wildlife conservation passport. However, visitors are exempt from this regulation if they attend a scheduled tour. To make a reservation please contact melynda.hickman@odwc.ok.gov or 405-990-4977.

Kiosk Project

The OWPHA received a grant from the USDA Rural Development Grant Program to install informational kiosks on the Great Plains Trail.  The goal is to have at least one kiosk on each of the 13 Loops.  To date we have installed 9 of the 13.  The kiosk design incorporates a chimney swift nesting tower surrounded by a 4-sided kiosk.  This design is not only striking but, as an added bonus, offers a conservation feature for the chimney swift, a species of bird that has become 95% dependent on humans for nesting success.  These birds winter in the northern 1/3 of South America and nest basically in the eastern half of North America.
