Oxley Nature Center is perfect for those kids and families who LOVE nature, the great outdoors, and learning (and who doesn't!)
Set on over 800 acres in the Tulsa area, Oxley nature Center supports a diverse range of habitats all along the south bank of Bird Creek!
Kids can experience the floor-plain forest, the giant cottonwoods and sycamores, and hackberry trees! Hidden in here are beautiful wildflowers and animals just waiting to be uncovered!
With open meadows and prairies to explore too, it really calls to the nature lovers in you!
Worth visiting at the Oxley Nature Center is the Interpretive Building, with hands-on exhibits and a wildlife viewing area, which makes the experience for kids that much more informative and fun!
The exhibits cover what kids might encounter at the nature center itself, so it's a great place to start your adventure. Here you can also find out all about the rich diversity within Tulsa's natural and cultural history!
There's a great observation tower to try and spot that wildlife from, as well as a boardwalk that extends right the way over Blackbird Marsh, giving kids a close up look at the wetlands!
Make sure you bring those hiking shoes because there is a lot to experience on foot! Whether you want to stroll, take photos, perhaps sit down a sketch for a while, or just study the wildflowers, it's a relaxing, calm and nature filled day for those families who want to just enjoy Mother Nature.
So what are you waiting for kids, nature is calling!
