Sunday, April 29, 2018, join us as we host Jr. Ranger Day’s Art-in-the-Park!

To help us show how art has helped preserve the cultures of the Washita, the Gilcrease Museum on Wheels will be visiting all the way from Tulsa with artworks that show the cultures of the Cheyenne and Arapaho of long ago. In addition, to help celebrate Jr. Ranger Day, the Washita Wildlife Refuge's Rangers are inviting the young and old alike to practice the art of bow & arrow hunting with their mobile archery activity.

Finally, did you know April is National Poetry Month? Join a park ranger for a poetry writing walk along the Dust & Fire Trail beginning at 1:30pm.

*Don't forget to be on the lookout for collector button #7! The button features famous local artist Augusta Corson Metcalfe as she paints the Washita River from her home along its northern banks in the mid-1900s.
