Nature Works Brochure

August 25, 2014 Bixby City Council votes to approve donation of Statue from Nature Works.

In addition to being visually appealing, the elk will also contribute to the park from a historical perspective.

The park was named after American writer Washington Irving as a nod to his expedition through the area in October 1832.

According to excerpts from the Oklahoma Historical Society, a young ranger named McClellan, who accompanied Irving on the expedition, shot and killed an elk — the first animal of its kind to be killed on the journey.
