Tulsa's River Parks Authority is pleased to announce the return of Monarchs on the Mountain, a festival celebrating the vital role Eastern Oklahoma plays in the Monarch Butterfly migration will be held September 22nd, on Turkey Mountain. The festival will take place from 10:00 am, until 2:00 pm in the pavilion area of the Turkey Mountain Urban Wilderness Area near the main trailhead, 6850 S. Elwood Ave.

The day will be filled with fun and educational activities highlighting the life cycle of the Monarch Butterfly, the Great Monarch Migration and the habitat of Turkey Mountain which supports a myriad of wildlife.
