Why bring nature online?
In this era of overloaded schedules and reduced funding for extracurricular activities like field trips, making a trek to a remote location has become even more difficult. Thus, The Nature Conservancy and Bank of America teamed up to overcome the challenge by bringing Oklahoma nature preserves online via OK360!
“With the launch of OK360, our partnership connects people to a diverse environmental and cultural heritage so vibrant here in Oklahoma,” said Bill Lissau, Tulsa market and Oklahoma state president for Bank of America. “It is precisely through this virtual access that we hope to create a greater appreciation of our unique natural treasures by spurring exploration and sparking imaginations at the stroke of a keyboard.”
“Bank of America’s contribution comes at an important time for our outreach program,” said Mike Fuhr, State Director for The Nature Conservancy of Oklahoma. “There is a growing disparity between the time people spend indoors wired to technology and the time they spend outside enjoying nature. With Bank of America’s support, we are able to further our outreach efforts by delivering Oklahoma’s remote, wild spaces to computer screens in homes and classrooms throughout the state.”
Inspire, Engage and Learn!
OK360 is great for all ages! Bring nature to the fingertips of youth at home or in the classroom. Escape the city and immerse yourself in the scenic beauty of Oklahoma’s wild places.
