This September, join the Deep Fork National Wildlife Refuge in celebrating their first quarter century. Established in 1993 to protect the rapidly disappearing bottomland hardwood forests of eastern Oklahoma, this refuge has become a crucial resource for seasonal waterfowl migration along with providing a home to more than 250 bird species, 50 mammals, reptiles and 22 amphibians.  

This 25th-anniversary party kicks off bright and early on Saturday morning and includes a wonderful array of family-friendly and free activities. At this milestone celebration watch live raptors, learn to fish, paint a t-shirt, build a bird box, shoot a bowl and hike a trail or three while learning about the mission of the United States Fish and Wildlife Service.
