This account written in 2007 by John Kennington.


Tulsa's Gilcrease Museum has one of the country's best collections of American art and history, including an impressive collection of Remington bronzes, as well as several original Audubon prints.

For birders the attraction is the grounds and the adjacent Stuart Park. This area was once savannah grassland sprinkled with trees. Today, although the terrain is varied, this is predominantly a woodland with interspersed grassland and prairie habitats. Plants found in the park include big bluestem, blazing star, Mexican hat, American elm, and blackjack, pin, shumard, chinkapin and post oaks. A boulder-lined hiking trail leads from the north parking lot to two ponds below which are enhanced by a wooden gazebo and bridge.

  

After circling the ponds, the trail continues through a wooded area, passing a number of sculptures to Pre-Columbian and Pioneer Garden, two of the many gardens on the grounds. The trail continues through a completely undeveloped area, passing a small prairie area, and an open meadow. The trail continues all the way to 33rd W. Avenue. On the return walk, as you pass the Grizzly Bear statues, follow the trail to the right rather than returning to the ponds. This trail which goes through a steep wooded area, heading towards the back of the museum, from where you can return to the parking lot.
