Explore the Wildlife Monuments

Every year, NatureWorks donates a life-sized wildlife monument to the city of Tulsa to honor those who have volunteered their time and energy to promote wildlife conservation. A person or group receives the NatureWorks Wildlife Stewardship Award for their contributions and service, and a monument donated in their honor. Each monument is fully underwritten by Patron sponsors consisting of individuals, families or corporations.

This program not only helps NatureWorks beautify Tulsa with monumental art, it also reminds visitors of the value wildlife holds in both our community and our lives.
