Wichita Mountains Wildlife Refuge
Southwest Natural and Cultural Heritage Association (PLIA)
Wichita Mountains Wildlife Refuge: The Wichita Mountains rise from the flat plains of southwest Oklahoma like a line of lonely sentinals, their rocky shoulders dappled by the shade of drifting clouds. This book provides a glimpse of the natural and cultural history of the Wichita Mountains Wildlife Refuge. Refuges are biologically diverse and individually unique, yet each is a part of a larger ecosystem which includes us. Maintaining healthy ecosystems is to our own benefit, and the stewardship of our earth, wildlife, and habistats is a responsibility we all share.
