Oklahoma Outdoor Ranger

To earn the patch you'll have to visit and learn about all three National Park units in the state of Oklahoma: The Oklahoma City National Memorial, the Chickasaw National Recreation Area, and the Washita Battlefield National Historic Site.

If you live in Oklahoma or are planning to visit, first get an Oklahoma Outdoor Ranger booklet. You can download it here, or pick one up when you visit one of the parks. In addition to the patch, you'll also receive a certificate as an Oklahoma Junior Ranger. Remember… as a Junior Ranger you EXPLORE – LEARN- and PROTECT wherever you go. Good luck!

Doxey Shale

The distant hills north of Washita Battlefield are called the Horseshoe Hills. These hills were formed as a result of erosion of the softer surrounding material about 250 million years ago, leaving the harder Doxey Shale behind.
