Join Us for a Night in the W!ld!
River Parks’ signature fall fundraiser, W!ld Turkey, returns on Thursday, September 30, 2021.  As autumn colors emerge among the forested hills of Turkey Mountain, a casual evening under the stars beckons!  Unwind in your most comfortable outdoor wear, visiting with friends old and new, sharing BBQ and bonfires as the sun dips below the horizon.  With your beverage of choice in hand, stroll the moonlit trails, relax to the sounds of bluegrass, and marvel at the majestic birds of prey and their handlers.

W!ld Turkey benefits the Turkey Mountain Urban Wilderness, Tulsa’s treasure trove of winding trails, quiet ponds and meadows, valleys and vistas.  Each year, tens of thousands hike, bike and ramble the wooded landscape, finding an uncommon respite in the heart of the city.  Completed in 2020, a Master Plan for the Wilderness lays the foundation for managing the land to assure its viability for generations to come.  Your support of W!ld Turkey is vital to launching the Master Plan’s goals  – preservation, restoration and recreation.  

Among the initial activities to address these goals are:
     - trail rehabilitation to mitigate significant trail erosion and improve wayfinding
     - prescribed, managed burns to thin the understory and reduce the danger of wildfire
     - removal and control of invasive vegetation
     - pond restoration and water quality testing
     - professionally designed trails, constructed in phases starting the summer of 2021

River Parks was among a limited number of public spaces that remained open to our community throughout 2020, a haven of normalcy where cares of the day could be left far behind.  Tallies recorded by our infrared trail counter show over 40,000 visitors passed through the main trailhead from March to June of 2020, an astonishing 45% increase compared to the same period the previous year! Your support at one of the many W!ld Turkey patron levels will make a lasting difference for the Turkey Mountain Urban Wilderness!

“Earth and sky, woods and fields, lakes and rivers, the mountain and the sea, are excellent schoolmasters, and teach some of us more than we can ever learn from books.” - Sir John Lubbock
