Things to do in the Grand Lake Area of NE OKFriday, April 25th, 2008
Grand Lake is known far and wide as a playground for fishermen, boaters, and sailers. A little known fact is just how many things there are to do around Grand Lake off the water.
One attraction is the Bernice Nature Center located in the Bernice State Park just east of Bernice on Highway 85. The center opened in the fall of 2006. Former State Senator Rick Littlefield was the one who got the funding to make this attraction happen. This is just one of the projects the Senator accomplished during his many years of service to NE Oklahoma.
The center features an aquarium, honey bees at work, toads, lizards, snakes, coons, squirrels, a beaver, bobcat, and many more alive and stuffed animals and reptiles of the area. The walls are lined with facts and information on wildlife in the Grand Lake area.
The center is open Monday thru Friday 9-4:00 during the winter. Summer hours are 9-4:30 Friday thru Tuesday. Hours are subject to change but you can call 918 257-8330 for more information.
This is just another thing to see and do at Grand Lake. Hope you are planning your outing to the area.
While thinking, think real estate on the lake.
