Kaw Lake has an Eagle watch from horseback. Are there any future plans to include anything like there's in the future?

Benjamin, all you need to do is show up at the Sequoyah National Wildlife Refuge headquarters at 9am. Dress warm and bring water, a snack and binoculars if you have them. A few sets of binoculars will be available for those who do not have any. The tour will depart from there and last approximately three hours. There will then be a break for lunch, and a loon watch will begin at Tenkiller State Park at 2pm. Meet at the Driftwood Nature Center. For more information, please call 918-489-5641. Have a great time and thank you for using TravelOK.com!

Visited with family on Saturday afternoon to Loon Watch. Leann Bunn, the state park's naturalist, led us to these remarkable birds with ease. Leann shared her knowledge generously making this unique experience very worthwhile. Be sure and come a little early to enjoy the Driftwood Nature Center and warm up to the wildlife. Thank you Leann!
