Presented by the Oklahoma Department of Wildlife Conservation and a coalition of conservation organizations, agencies and sponsors, Expo celebrates our great state’s natural diversity and opportunities for the sporting enthusiasts and newcomers. The annual event takes place at the Lazy E Arena in Guthrie. This year, the event will be held September 25-27 with the 25th being designated a “school day”.
From camping and outdoor skills to shooting sports and fishing, from bird watching to kayaking, Expo visitors have an opportunity to try their hands at two days of fun in the outdoors.
Last year over 45 thousand people visited the expo!

Friday, September 25, 2015, has been designated as a School Day, with hours of operation to accommodate field trips (8:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m.).
Admission to the Wildlife Expo, parking and all activities are completely free. We offer over 100 hands-on exhibits, skill activities, and demonstrations that make the Wildlife Expo a field trip your school can’t afford to miss! While all ages are welcome, 4th-12th graders seem most excited about Wildlife Expo activities.
Inside the students learn about Oklahoma’s wildlife species, habitats and wildlife management while visiting hands-on exhibits and booths. Outside, students can learn to identify Oklahoma birds, visit a living historical encampment, identify wildlife tracks and signs, start a fire without matches, catch a fish, learn about dog training, ride a mountain bike, shoot a bow or shotgun…and much more!
