This week Angelina Stancampiano, with Oklahoma State Parks interviews the new full time naturalist at Greenleaf State Park. Kristen Perry is the newest park naturalists in one of our oldest state parks. Listen in and learn about the park and all the fun things you can do at the park this fall!
I highly recommend hiking out to the swinging bridge! It is one of my favorite things on any trail in our state parks!
As you may know our fall BioBlitz! Oklahoma weekend is not going to be our traditional big campout weekend. We are organizing the BioBlitz! weekend, which is Oct 1-3 to be statewide and dispersed. Like last year we will have three full days of inventory Fri, Sat, and Sun. And we are using iNaturalist and eBird to record our observations. Experts are also hosting a variety of small in-person activities around the state.
You need to sign up for the activity with the leader to attend and space is limited. So don't wait! Check out the schedule and sign up at our website!
We encourage all weekend participants, even if you are just doing things on your own, to register for the weekend. We want to know how many of you are celebrating our Biodiversity that weekend. Registration is free And you will get this year's sticker! These stickers are great – and water resistant – perfect for your water bottle, lap top, or car window!
This podcast is a project of BioBlitz! Oklahoma, an outreach program of the Oklahoma Biological Survey at the University of Oklahoma.
We hope you have time to step outside today and explore Oklahoma's amazing biodiversity. Remember, you can find biodiversity right outside your door.
