Lesser Prairie-Chicken Festival
Tulsa Audubon Society (OK) sponsored the first annual “Lek Treks & More: The Woodward Lesser Prairie-Chicken Festival” that attracted over 100 participants from 15 different states and two provinces. Funding was provided through a combination of participant registration fees, community business donations and a TogetherGreen grant. Festival activities included a variety of field trips, workshops and other events from nature journaling to learning about the venomous spiders and insects of the prairie. Everyone had great views of the Lesser Prairie Chickens displaying on the lek. Attendees also enthusiastically participated in a fence marking project in an effort to reduce chicken mortality due to fence collisions.
