The Stewart L. Udall Parks in Focus Program

Our Programs - Oklahoma

Parks in Focus® is developing a year-round program in Oklahoma City, modeled after our successful flagship program in Tucson. Thanks to generous support from the Inasmuch Foundation, we piloted our Oklahoma program in fall 2012 with the Boys & Girls Clubs of Oklahoma County.

Now, Parks in Focus® also partners with Big Brothers Big Sisters of Oklahoma, Positive Tomorrows, and other youth organizations to introduce underserved youth from the Oklahoma City area to Oklahoma’s parks and scenic places. Throughout the year, we host a variety of afterschool and weekend outings to places like Bluff Creek Park, Arcadia Lake, Martin Park, Myriad Botanical Gardens, Roman Nose State Park, and Wichita Mountains Wildlife Refuge.

Photographs taken by our 2014 participants were exhibited at the Oklahoma City Museum of Art. For more information and a short video, visit News & Events.
