For millennia, the salt plains were the scenes of Native American gatherings, providing salt and important hunting grounds. Found nowhere else for hundreds of miles around, the salt plains provided essential shelter, foraging, and breeding habitat attracting multitudes of migrating waterfowl, breeding birds, and big game such as bison and deer. Today, this unique assemblage of habitat surrounded by a patchwork of farmlands continues to be a vital migratory stopover and breeding grounds for birds and a protected area for wildlife.
The entire refuge is designated as critical whooping crane habitat for use during the fall and spring migrations of America’s tallest bird. The refuge has also been designated as an Important Bird Area and a member of the Western Hemisphere Shorebird Reserve Network.
Established in 1901,Wichita Mountains Wildlife Refuge is one of more than 556 refuges throughout the United States managed by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. The 59,020 acre refuge hosts a rare piece of the past - a remnant mixed grass prairie, an island where the natural grasslands escaped destruction because the rocks underfoot defeated the plow.
The refuge provides habitat for large native grazing animals such as American bison, Rocky Mountain elk, and white-tailed deer. Texas longhorn cattle also share the refuge rangelands as a cultural and historical legacy species. More than 50 mammal, 240 bird, 64 reptile and amphibian, 36 fish, and 806 plant species thrive on this important refuge.

Located near the Oklahoma/Arkansas border in the scenic Ozark Highlands region of northeast Oklahoma, Natural Falls State Park features a stunning 77-foot waterfall cascading through rock formations and creating a hidden, serene atmosphere at the bottom of a narrow V-shaped valley. A railed observation platform allows hikers to overlook the falls and another observation deck with seating is located at the foot of the falls offering two vantage points to enjoy one of the most scenic wonders in the state. The beautiful scenery looks familiar to many visitors because scenes from the 1974 movie, "Where the Red Fern Grows" were filmed in the park.
Originally called Sulphur Creek, Travertine Creek gets its main water supply from Antelope and Buffalo Springs. The water that emerges from Antelope and Buffalo Springs contains dissolved limestone from underground deposits. Above ground the limestone is redeposited as a porous substance known as travertine.
From the Travertine Nature Center, you will follow the trail west to Little Niagara waterfall, a favorite swimming hole for many visitors. Little Niagara waterfall was formed by one of a series of dams constructed by the Civilian Conservation Center (CCC) along Travertine Creek. The water of Travertine Creek maintains an average temperature of 65 degrees year round, which makes for an invigorating plunge on hot summer days. Travertine Creek tumbles over 75 natural rock falls and down six man-made dams as it winds along its 2 1/2 mile course from the Travertine Nature Center to Pavilion Springs.

Bathtub Rocks, which is a part of Cedar Creek, has water flowing over it that is considered to be one of the state’s most pristine water sources. Our scientists and partner scientists conduct water quality tests along with species surveys each year to ensure that this area remains clean and unpolluted for both nature and people.

My Beer Philosophy is simple: I brew beer that I love to drink and I believe you will too. Cheers!
I started brewing back in 2001 with my best friend Dave, and we’d make a batch of home brew a couple of times a month. Later that year we took a trip to the Great American Beer Festival and came home with big plans for our own brewery, but it just wasn't meant to be at that time.
A few years later, my wife Cynthia and I were honeymooning in Colorado, and a tour of Left Hand Brewing Co. rekindled my fire for brewing. She was incredibly supportive as I began homebrewing again. Sadly, Dave passed away just months after our wedding (I brew Brother Dave's in his memory). I started entering competitions in 2010. A few medals from around the country convinced me to go full-steam ahead, and, after some equipment purchases and location shuffles, I was able to start Elk Valley Brewing Co. full-time in 2014.
Meet Oklahoma's oldest handcrafted beer.
In Italian immigrant Pete Prichard's effort to support his family, he came up with the idea of using an Indian Territory recipe to brew a beverage for the coal miners.
Pete's idea led to trouble during Prohibition. He was convicted, not once but twice, for breaking the federal Prohibition Act.
Prohibition was repealed in the late 1950s, but home brewed beverages were still illegal because they didn't bear the proper liquor stamps. Nevertheless, homemade Choc and wine continued to be available to regular customers at Pete's, a restaurant owned by Prichard in Krebs, Okla.
Those customers happen to include JFK and high-powered Oklahoma politicians.
Finally, in 1995, through tireless efforts on the part of Joe Prichard, the grandson of the founder, Pete's Place reintroduced Choc beer as part of the restaurant's tradition and a "legal" brew for customers.
(405) Brewing Co. was co-founded by two life-long friends, Trae Carson and Jonathan Stapleton.
Their passion for creating memorable experiences through beer has manifested into a project brewery with a philosophy of "FDR".
Each batch and every blend is an exploration into new brewing techniques and processes with an emphasis on mixed fermentation. We encourage you to visit our taproom and hang out with our community of friends!

solera /səˈlɛərə/ noun
1. a system for aging sherry and other fortified wines, in which younger wines in upper rows of casks are used to top up casks of older wines stored below in order to produce a consistently aged blend.

Most of our beers are aged 6 to 18 months prior to bottling. Giving each beer its own unique flavor profile.

Today, after decades of silencing the vines, Oklahoma has rekindled its interest in wine grapes. Many new vineyards have sprung up in the Sparks area since we built our new custom-designed winery in 2000 and conducted our first crush. A boost for the growth of Oklahoma wine industry occurred in the fall of the same year with the passage of SQ688, allowing wineries to wholesale directly to state's liquor stores and restaurants. And 2003 is again a vintage legislative year for us thanks to the passage of HB1107, which permits sales of Oklahoma wines at trade shows and festivals. We hope that you are as excited about this as we are.

In 1997, Jesse and Linda King opened
Three Rivers Fly Shop. After almost 20 years of guiding and teaching people to fly fish, it was time to retire. But quit? NO! Jesse loved to make wine from the wild muscadines that grew close by.
Hochatown had grown from a quaint community they had discovered in 1997 to a place exploding with tourists. It became clear that they could offer visitors a little bit of Oklahoma history through Muscadine wine. Vineyards were planted and Andy joined them to create
Fish Tales Winery & Vineyards.
