A short nature hike dedicated to "Martha" the last known passenger pigeon. On this short hike on Fort Sill, you can learn to identify some of the local plant life. Along the way you can view signs for the local trees and some of the plant life. Also along the way there are a few educational signs that provide you with background information on how a forest works. How the insects, animals, and plants co-exist to feed one another. This was not the sight of the last passenger pigeon but it was dedicated in her honor. The trail is only accessible to military personnel and there families. Below is a short description of Martha that last passenger pigeon. On September 1, 1914, Martha, the last known passenger pigeon, died in the Cincinnati Zoo. Her body was frozen into a block of ice and sent to the Smithsonian Institution, where it was skinned and mounted. Martha was named after Martha Washington and is in the museum's archived collection which is not currently on display. A memorial statue of Martha stands on the grounds of the Cincinnati Zoo. This is a great hike any time of the year for the whole family. It provides a great way to learn about nature and how to identify the local trees.

Kiley and I took Ron on this trail today not bad not great, the weeds are grown up in most places but the trail is easy to make out. At the fat end of the entrance is a park which was nice for Kiley.
