Round up the shovels and pack the trash bags; we’re having another Turkey MTN clean-up day! Saturday, January 12, 2013 at 9am, Turkey MTN volunteers (that means you!) will be working together to keep our mountain in tip-top shape. This includes some trail construction headed up by David Ridilla, some trash pick-up around the main parking lot, and a lot of tree trimming, maintenance, and painting. Please join us! Questions? Look us up on facebook.com/turkeymountain.

We had a HUGE turnout today for the Turkey Mtn Cleanup! Over 95 people showed up to gather water bottles, trash, old bike tubes, dumped wood, mattresses, and much more from all over the Mountain. There were two large dumpsters brought to us by the City of Tulsa that were almost completely filled. Volunteers scoured trails, roadsides, brush, and more looking for any trash that they could take out. We’re proud to say that every known location of trash/dumping has been cleaned up – in other works, this is the cleanest that Turkey Mountain has been in years! Many thanks to all the volunteers who helped out with the cleanup, and to Hammerhead Bikes, TATUR Racing, LOVEtulsa, ORU, and RunnersWorld!

In a statement today, River Parks’ Executive Director Matt Meyer said, “River Parks does not support the Tulsa Harbour development proposal.”
Our favorite playground is due for some sprucing up, and Hammerhead Bikes, TATUR Racing, LOVEtulsa, ORU, and RunnersWorld have joined forces to help make it happen! Meet at the Turkey MTN parking lot February 25 at 10 AM for a big day of making our mountain look its best.
Focus will be trash clean up in the following areas:
At last month’s trail maintenance day at Turkey Mountain, we quickly discovered that the ground was much to hard to perform any type of hand work. Shovels bent in half; picks shattered as they contacted the dry, hardened earth. OK, that might be overstating the situation. The good news is, we have officially gotten plenty of rain to loosen things up around Turkey Mountain.
So…let’s do this! As a part of the new monthly schedule, we’ll be meeting Saturday, May 14th, 9:00 AM, at the Turkey Mountain parking lot.

Success! Not even an unplanned rainstorm overnight could deter a number of dedicated Turkey Mountain enthusiasts from taking a 2 hour hike, then meeting at River Parks for an informal discussion/brainstorming session. Honestly, we have a ton of info to sort through. We’re going to have another gathering in a week or two to continue digesting on what we’ve heard today.
Big thanks to Dan Hudson and IMBA, and all of the Turkey Mtn bikers, equestrians, and hikers who showed up today!
