Kay Co Eco Trail Outdoor Classroom!
(located adjacent to the Farm Service Center, 5501 N Pleasant View Ave, Newkirk, Oklahoma)
The classroom was created with an Oklahoma Department of Tourism Recreational Trails Grant, a US Fish and Wildlife Grant, and many generous donations. The classroom gives students of all ages the chance to observe, classify, measure, analyze, and interpret facts about the earth's natural resources; water, air, plants, animals and soil.
