  • Forestry Departments “Walk in the Forest” ~Turkey Mt. Tulsa, OK

    We went to a previous Walk in the Forest event by accident.

    It is so much fun though I am glad we stumbled upon it that first time.

    And that we got invited this time!

    They had these trail books that the kids could fill out for a prize at the end.

    The boys really liked this stump with not just dates for the tree rings but what was going on at the time!

    Such a great idea.

    There were stations set up throughout the woods with activities and information.

    At this one they learned about the different types of forests in Oklahoma.

    This one was on invasive plant and insect species.

    They learned about how to tell how old a tree is and that big does not necessarily mean old.

    They had a station about all the different products that use parts of trees.

    Then at the end they gave out a little Loblolly Pine!

    I am hoping we don’t kill it.

    The kids got to pick a prize from the prize table for finishing their books!

    This is a great event if you have a reluctant hiker or just want to learn more about the woods!

    Make sure you keep an eye on their page for the next one.

      How did I miss this!?! I am also a homeschooling/hiking mom in central OK…always looking for new hikes and friends for my son. I came across this blog a few days too late or we would have been out there with you on the 22nd!
