Save the Dates for the 2016 Lesser Prairie-Chicken Festival!
April 13-19, 2016
Featuring keynote speaker Pete Dunne
Join us in Woodward, Oklahoma, in northwest Oklahoma April 13-19 for the 2016 Lesser Prairie-Chicken Festival. The 2016 festival will feature keynote speaker Pete Dunne. Besides seeing the Lesser Prairie-Chickens (and so far 99% of participants have had close looks!) and birding around northwest Oklahoma, we expect to again offer these special features for 2016:
- An opportunity to view Greater Prairie-Chickens from blinds in Osage County, Oklahoma!
- Packages designed specifically for photographers!
Registration material for the 2016 festival be available on or about September 1, 2015. However, we have left the 2015 materials on the web site, and we expect the events, schedule and prices will be very similar to 2015.
So please check out the 2015 schedule of events, field trips, bird lists, registration materials, etc. on the rest of this web site, and come back in September for the 2016 registration. If you have any question, feel free to contact John Kennington at 918-809-6325 or email@example.com
