The Wichita Mountains compose one of the oldest mountain ranges in the United States. The granite and quartz peaks are strewn with weathered boulders in soft pink, gold, and blue tints. The refuge was established as a game preserve in 1905 by President Theodore Roosevelt. It is located 25 miles northwest of Lawton, OK and includes about 60,000 acres. It is now one of the jewels of the National Wildlife Refuge System. The scenery is stunning. In the spring, the mountainsides are blanketed by wildflowers. In addition, the refuge features a herd of about 500 bison. This herd is the result of one of the earliest efforts to save the bison from extinction. The refuge is also home to a herd of purebred longhorn cattle. A large prairie dog town is another popular feature. The visitor's center holds many fascinating exhibits. Join Tulsa Audubon Society for a delightful overnight field trip. We will be looking for spring migrants. We will leave on Friday, April 19 and spend that night and Saturday night at a motel in Lawton. For those who wish to drive down on Saturday, we will have cell phones to facilitate meeting at the refuge. For information call Gail Storey (742-2684) or Bill Foster (663-0973).
