Cats, Bears, Wolves, Lemurs…oh, my! (Safari’s in Broken Arrow)

I stopped by Safari’s in Broken Arrow, OK (MAP) today, and had a great time. The animals were hanging out in the shade (of course), but most were still visible. You may have read that the wildlife refuge is going through a period of transition right now, so Lori and the staff need Broken Arrow’s […]

Thunderbird Berry Farm in Broken Arrow

The blueberries are ready for picking ($3.00/lb, or on the thirds), as are some of the blackberries. There’s also honey, and there will be a few grapes later. To get there, head East on Kenosha (71st Street), and keep […]

Did you know Broken Arrow has a Time Capsule?

The Pioneer Family in Main Street Broken Arrow’s Centennial Park (MAP) has become one of the city’s famous icons. Commissioned by Broken Arrow, the sculpture is by David Nunneley (read his story, HERE), and is truly gorgeous. If the sculpture art looks familiar, it’s because Nenneley’s work is also featured in Broken Arrow’s Veterans Park. […]

So Ugly, They’re Cute

So, I thought I would kick this feature area off officially with a little cuteness.  This goose family is camped out in the retention ponds on the West side of Reasor’s (map) on Kenosha in Broken Arrow.  There are six little fuzzy goslings in total, and their parents are teaching them to forage and drink.
