South Turnpike Loop Trail Wetlands, Broken Arrow

This account was created in 2007.


This wetlands remediation area is some of the most accessible wetlands in south Tulsa County. The area of interest to birders is at the northwest corner of 101st St. (aka New Orleans Ave in Broken Arrow) and Garnett Road. Egrets, Great Blue Herons and other water birds are found throughout the spring, summer and fall. Sora have also been found here. During migration the exposed mudflats attract a variety of shorebirds, and along the wooded edges the expected land bird species are common.

Broken Arrow's section of the South Loop Turnpike Trail follows the Creek Turnpike. As of 2007 it is still under construction, but when complete will stretch nine miles from 96 St. South and Garnett Road and follow the turnpike around past County Line Road and then north to the Northeastern State University campus in Broken Arrow at 101 St. S. The trail features a 10-foot wide riding and biking trail of asphalt.

Parking is located just east of the Creek Turnpike on the south side of 101st St.
