2003 - Nonprofit Organization Award - Education & Promotion - G.M. Sutton Avian Research Center
Education & Promotion (annual buget >$100,000) - G.M. Sutton Avian Research Center
Joggers, bicyclists, skaters and walkers are pausing
these days along the 11-mile Pathfinder Parkway trail in Bartlesville
to learn about birds, thanks to a well-executed three-year project of
the Sutton Avian Research Center there.
Two large signs at the entrances
to the trail inform patrons of ten additional signs along the route,
each highlighting four species grouped by intriguing themes. The signs
feature the talents of an award-winning bird artist, engaging and
informative text, and range maps for each species. Each sign is
attractively presented with high-quality, durable materials.
With support from Conoco-Phillips, the Bartlesville Service
League, OSU - Okmulgee, Bartlesville High School, and Service and
Technology Corporation, the project wonderfully combines beautification
with education. The Sutton Avian Research Center's bird trail is good
news taking wing in northeastern Oklahoma.
