What do Taft Stadium, Wintersmith Park, Green Leaf State Park, and Robbers Cave State Park (in Oklahoma) have in common? Which state and federal programs allowed their establishment? How do the programs differ? Have you been to or were aware of these places in Oklahoma? What does this say about the efforts made to conserve and develop (for pleasure and recreation) these places? If you’re not familiar with Oklahoma or these parks, identify a city park, and two state parks from your home state to respond.
