Oxley Nature Center’s 9 miles of trails would be so very fun with all the fall color right now. But it has it’s beauty with all of the different seasons. The trials are available 7 days a week. Please check their website for specific information about hours. www.oxleynaturecenter.org You will also find the maps on their website. Oxley Nature Center is part of Mohawk Park near the Tulsa zoo. The website has directions. You might also check out their Facebook page.
This could be a great activity for you as a family or you as a couple. You can do the trails on your own or you can take advantage of the Saturday programs that are offered. When you go into the website, click the program tab for information on the variety of programs offered by Oxley Nature Center. Some of the Programs offered are:
Saturday Morning Bird Walks
Earth Science Walks
Full Moon Walk Programs
Weekend Tours (for groups of 6 or more)
There is a Nature Store that is part of the Oxley-Yetter Interpretive Building. Check it out.
A nature walk is a perfect opportunity for a couple or a family to connect with each other. Choosing to have everyone not use their phones during the walk, will even enhance the opportunity to connect and interact with each other. We have found these trails to be easy to walk, but very interesting with lots to see. This includes abundant birds and wildlife. Best wishes for a beautiful day out in nature with your family.
