Green Initiatives & Environmental History for: Oklahoma





Basic History

The Spanish were the first to explore the region in 1541. The U.S. acquired most of Oklahoma in 1803 from France. Set aside as Indian territory in 1834, the region was divided into Indian Territory and Oklahoma Territory on May 2nd, 1890. The two were combined to make a new state, Oklahoma, on November 16th, 1907.

Environmental History

Grasses grow in abundance in Oklahoma. Bluestem, buffalo, sand lovegrass are native. Deciduous hardwoods stand in eastern Oklahoma, and red and yellow cactus blossoms brighten the area in the northwest. The western prairie fringed orchid has been listed as threatened. The white-tailed deer, Rio Grande wild turkeys, pronghorn antelope, elk, and a few herds of American buffalo (bison) inhabit the region. Among the state’s 19 endangered or threatened species of wildlife are three species of bat (big-eared, Indiana, and gray), bald eagle, whooping crane, red-cockaded woodpecker, Eskimo curlew, and Neosho madtom.
