Jungle Day - Bill Crawford
Today we’re grabbing our boots and binoculars to make our way through the jungle! What better time to get outside and do some exploring? Today’s theme is inspired by Oklahoma Hall of Fame Member William (Bill) Crawford. His hometown is Frederick, Oklahoma. Crawford was a banker by trade, but was passionate about wildlife conservation. He led one of the largest wetland restoration projects, the Hackberry Flat Wetland Restoration Project. Crawford helped restore over 7,000 acres of wetland basin. Because of his efforts in conservation, Crawford received the 2001 Alexander Calder Conservation Award. You can learn more by reading Bill Crawford’s Oklahoma Hall of Fame biography.
