Sittin' Green Together
Deep Fork NWR Habitat Improvement & Big Sit
Tulsa Audubon and the Friends of the Deep Fork National Wildlife Refuge celebrate National Public Lands Day and National Wildlife Refuge Week!
October 12, 2008

Scroll down for pictures!

Thank you to all who made a first Together Green a great success!

We began the day at 5:30 a.m. as our Big Sit began. (A Big Sit is a bird count conducted entirely from a circle of about 17' in diameter. Birders sit in it all day and record everything that they see and hear.) When the final team left the circle at 5:30 p.m. we had tallied 41 species.

At 1:00 Lori Jones from the Deep Fork NWR led a wonderful nature walk along the Cussetah Bottoms board walk. A highlight was a baby Pygmy Rattlesnake! We then began our work, cleaning the trail and planting the wildlife friendly plants and shrubs (provided by TAS) in the Cussetah Bottoms area. The Schulter fire department provided a truck to water the everything we had just planted.

We ended the day with supper provided by the Friends of Deep Fork.
