Registration is now open for the
2018 Lesser Prairie-Chicken Festival!
April 11-18, 2018
Featuring keynote speaker Al Blatt
Join us in Woodward, Oklahoma, in northwest Oklahoma April 11-18 for the 2018 Lesser Prairie-Chicken Festival. The 2018 festival will feature keynote speaker Al Blatt. Besides seeing the Lesser Prairie-Chickens (and so far 99% of participants have had close looks!) and birding around northwest Oklahoma, we are again offering these special features for 2017:
- An opportunity to view Greater Prairie-Chickens from blinds in Osage County, Oklahoma!
- Packages designed specifically for photographers!
If you have any question, feel free to contact John Kennington at 918-809-6325 or firstname.lastname@example.org
In early 2017 northwest Oklahoma, southwest Kansas and the Texas panhandle were devasted by wildfires covering over 1 million acres, far beyond any “normal” prairie fires. The Selman Ranch was spared, but the ranch we use for the Photographer’s Package was destroyed and we had to cancel. Be sure to read the note on the Photography page for an update on our plans for 2018.
