Our next meeting will be 11-6-08 at the Lawton Board of Realtors building, 1609 Euclid at 7:00 Pm. There is a lot on the agenda.


(1)   The Presentation of an award to Mr. Wallace Coffey for the Comanche Tribe’s contribution to out trails program. This will be presented by Councilman Bill Shoemate.

(2)   The Lake and Lands Commission has agreed to be present and address the possibility of a Portal from the Refuge into the land that the City of Lawton owns west of Lake Lawtonka. Jeff Rupert will also be present to discuss this. The trail is already there and being used. This would allow us to put up signs marking the trail and have easier access.

(3)   Tom Cook with the City’s Planning Department will be present to discuss the possibility of establishing a “Rails to Trails” path on the abandoned RR line east of down town Lawton, that runs through Ft. Sill.

(4)   Janette New with an update on the Safe Routes to School Program.

(5)   First planning session for our Tour of the Wichitas in May of 2009 and the Synergy in Motion event at the Museum.


We will bring you up to date on the progress of the many other projects that are under way in the Lawton-Ft Sill and Wildlife Refuge areas.


See you there!
