Oklahoma State Parks and Tenkiller State Park presented awards to the Tenkiller Park Partners citizen organization at their recent monthly meeting and holiday dinner in appreciation of their support of Tenkiller State Park events and projects in 2002. The group is comprised of local community leaders interested in the promotion and improvement of the park facilities and programs. During the past year the young organization has helped secure grant funding for developing a multi-use diabled accessible interpretive scenic trail, assisted with the construction of a kids fishing pond and built a wildlife observation blind with feeders along the route of the new trail in the park. The park friends also staffed a litter cleanup day, kids fishing clinic, the annual Easter Extravaganza, autumn arts and crafts festival and the Halloween Haunting events. Their efforts have contributed greatly to the increasing visitation and facility improvements in Tenkiller State Park. The State Parks Division truly appreciates the assistance of these wonderful park partners!

Tenkiller Park staff also recognized representatives of the nearby Methodist Youth Ranch with a plaque for their assistance with many service projects in the park at the nature center and making wildlife habitat improvements in the park. At an earlier meeting, the park had recognized the cadets of the Thunderbird Youth Academy from Pryor for their many Saturdays of volunteer service in trail maintenance, debris removal and brush control around the cabins. These young people have made a direct positive impact on the beauty of the park for visitors and wildlife. Enjoy their efforts on your next visit to Tenkiller!
