Please join us for our annual tour of local gardens and
yards that have been turned into animal-friendly spaces, along with a
plant sale from companies featuring native and wildlife friendly plants.
Tickets are $6 per person (children 13 and under are free) and will be available
at each of the homes so there is not one "starting place."
This year's tour
will feature five gardens

WING-IT (Wildlife In

the rehabilitation of orphaned, sick, injured or otherwise displaced
wildlife with the ultimate goal of releasing them back into the wild.
Oxley Nature Center
is Tulsa's hidden gem located in Mohawk Park, the Nature Center is a
wonderful place to encounter the wildlife of the Tulsa area. Oxley Nature
Center's 804 acres support a diversity of habitats along the south bank of
Audubon Members and
Friends! Consider volunteering for a very pleasant and
educational morning or afternoon on this weekend at one of the
beautiful gardens on Audubon's annual wildlife habitat
garden tour! You'll see people you haven't seen for too long,
have interesting, even memorable conversations, and be outdoors
with lots of native plants around you! In addition volunteers
receive a free ticket for the tour - a $5.00 value, so
you'll effectively be making $1.25/hour!! :)
Please call Jan
Curth at 918-289-6281 with any questions or to volunteer.
Gardening for Wildlife
Our backyards are our private
spaces, but also part of a larger landscape we share with our
human and wildlife neighbors. With the right tools and
information, we all can do simple things to create a healthier
place to live for our families, our communities, and birds,
plants, and other wildlife. Audubon At Home in Tulsa is about
taking personal conservation action to improve the environmental
health and habitat quality of our yards and neighborhoods.
Together, our actions can have a substantial effect.
Gardening for Wildlife enriches the
lives of urban gardeners. As valuable habitat for wildlife
decreases due to the accelerating growth in our region,
backyard habitats are ever more important. You can adopt
gardening practices that have a positive impact on the water
quality and help slow the loss of wildlife habitat. Most
potential "urban habitat" for birds and other wildlife is
located not in public parks and greenbelts, but in the yards
around privately-owned homes.
