Keystone Ancient Forest Hike Day @ Keystone Ancient Forest
Mar 28 @ 8:00 am – 2:00 pm

At the Keystone Ancient Forest you’ll hike amidst a classic Oklahoma cross timbers forest with 500-year-old cedars and 300-year-old post oak trees. Come out and take in all that this magnificent forest has to offer inside a 1,360 acre nature preserve listed by The Nature Conservancy as one of the last great places on earth!

Deer, mountain lion, bobcat, American eagles, migratory birds, and over 80 varied species of butterflies inhabit this place. So enjoy, but please leave only footprints during your hike.

Trail Guides

Volunteer trail guides help staff the parking lot and monitor each hike event. You can hike alone, or if there are enough trail guides available and you choose to, someone may hike with you to help interpret the forest landscape and this interpretative project in the making!

Guidelines

No reservations are needed. Gates open at 8:00 am. Hikes take about an hour to complete and are typically on your own. You’ll need to allow enough time for your hiking experience as trail guides will lock the gate at 2:00 pm No pets are allowed on the trails. Wear comfortable hiking attire, sun screen, and bug spray if you would like. Port-a-potties are available on-site.

Hike dates are subject to change due to weather! Please see our Facebook page for current updates and cancellations.

Mark Gibson Living Room Concert #2 @ Facebook Live, @markgibsonmusic
Mar 28 @ 8:00 pm – 10:00 pm

Hey, everyone! The first live stream concert was a huge success! Thank you to everyone that watched and tipped me in my virtual tip jars. Your support and generosity was breathtaking. It really helped relive some of the stress of getting my whole show calendar wiped for the foreseeable future. I’ve got a lot of interest in me doing another live streaming concert, so let’s do it! The concert will be this Saturday from 8-10pm CST. I want this show to be different than the first, so this time the setlist will be entirely comprised of your requests! So please make your song requests on this event page before the concert starts, and I’ll make sure to add them to the list. Obviously, requesting one of my originals or a cover you know I already do, is the easiest for me. Ha! That being said, if you’d like me to perform a song I don’t already know, please feel free to ask (ASAP), and I’ll let you know if it’s something I think I can pull off. LOL. Finally, 2 hours is a long time to perform without a break. I’ll be taking a break this time at 9pm to talk to you all, and respond to your comments. It will be fun! I’ll then finish out the night with the rest of your requests. I hope you can join me!
