MADE IN AMERICA

GT’S KOMBUCHA

Inspired by the sophisticated profile of a traditional Mexican tepache, GT’s CLASSIC GOLD Piña Paradise Kombucha delivers tropical cocktail taste with 3% ABV and billions of living probiotics.

PRAIRIE BIRTHDAY BOMB!

The beer remains an imperial stout with coffee, cacao nibs, vanilla bean, chili peppers, caramel sauce and toffee.

TOPPLING GOLIATH HOPSMACK! Giant aromas of pineapple and tropical fruit jump from this enticingly complex double IPA. True to its name, this brew delivers a heavy smack of dry hops and a double dose of bitterness in the finish.

Summer

Emily Steward Photography, Sue G. Collins, Visit Beaufort

SUMMERTIME IS A MAGICAL SEASON. The kids are out of school, the sunshine seems never-ending and there’s no shortage of adventures that await. For many, summer evokes fond memories of childhood—sleepaway camp, family vacations and swimming until your fingers shriveled like prunes. We also celebrate our nation’s independence, host parties for our friends and family and, if we’re lucky, take a scenic road trip! We planned the ideal summer getaway to relax with salt water in the air and sunrises over the ocean. This month is also a great opportunity to discover our local music scene at various venues like Cains or The Joint. We can’t wait to catch Michael Buble in Concert on July 15 at the BOK Center! And don’t miss the Summer Heat International Dance Festival presented by Choregus Productions. With so much to see and do this month, we only scratched the surface of what Tulsa has to offer—but we hope this issue gets you off to a good start. Happy exploring, Tulsa. We hope to see you around!

GIVING BACK

A new STEM in Woodward Park INTRODUCING WOODWARD PARK’S NEWEST OUTREACH PROGRAM

YOU HAVE THREE NICELY POTTED, THRIVING PLANTS – A CACTUS, A MARIGOLD, AND AN AZALEA. The question is posed to a curious group of grade school teachers, as they take in the expansive overlook of the Tulsa Rose Garden from our new vista Pavilion, “what happens if we play the shell game and replant them in each other’s pots? Live or Die? Why?” Now the exploration process of critical thinking begins for Soil Chemistry, as part of their Summer Professional Development (PD) in the Tulsa Regional STEM Alliance’s (TRSA) SENSEational Science.  This is experiential STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) outdoors, where it naturally occurs.

Welcome to the new Outdoor Classroom at Woodward Park! Outdoor Classroom has served over 12,000 Tulsa area, older elementary students since it started in the fall of 2015 at Camp Loughridge. Our young naturalist “customers” primarily come from low-income and marginalized communities in the Tulsa-area, where STEM inequities and lack of career mentoring are prevalent. They are now a part of a rich STEM ecosystem spanning across non-traditional educators. Thanks

empowering this restart, and to our past donors who built a strong foundation to sustain this program, Outdoor Classroom is alive, well and blooming again in the 45-acres of the Woodward Park campus. The program leverages and collaborates with the legacy of the Linnaeus Teaching Garden program started by Tulsa Garden Center’s Director of Horticulture, Barry Fugatt. Outdoor Classroom at Woodward Park is a new program of the venerable Tulsa Garden Center.  Our collaboration team will include the neighboring Tulsa Historical Society Museum to help add the “A” (Arts & Culture) to STEAM. Every student’s 5-hour, class-day adventure starts with navigating the majestic oaks and arboretum, exploring the water ecology, while expanding student’s outlook beyond the length of their arms at their smartphones.  We find tracks and scat on the trails, study the clouds, understand the shadows and the sun, learn life-skills while getting messy, all Orienteering

Oklahoma is #1 in too many negative aspects. Too many of our students (and their beleaguered teachers) experience STEM inequities, high risk factors in marginalized and underserved communities, and missed learning opportunities, which all limit human potential.  Outdoor Classroom at Woodward Park strives to be a bright thread in the rich tapestry of our Tulsa STEM Education ecosystem, providing a springboard to change communities from the kids on up. 16

While there can be concern about citrus oils on the skin when exposed to sunlight, lemongrass isn’t a photosensitive oil, and if lemon essential oil is steam-distilled rather than cold-pressed (Oui Fresh essential oils are cold-pressed) it can be used on the skin. So just make sure to note which one your lemon oil is and only spray on clothes if you don’t have a skin-safe lemon oil (which is an application method a lot of people prefer anyway if they are more sensitive to oils).

me through the lively visitors center, nearby educational nature center where you can borrow fishing tackle on the pier. The lighthouse there was built in 1873 and is the only one open to the public in the state. I climbed  what seemed like a hundred spiral steps to the top and was rewarded with a view of the coastline and a canopy of Cabbage Palmetto, Slash Pines, Longleaf Pines, Live Oaks and more that make up the island’s four climate zones. Before and after all this exploring, Beaufort serves up coffee at the cool City Java & News, waterfront Common Grounds or Beaufort Break Company on the adjoining Lady’s Island and breakfast at Palm & Moon Bagel Company and the charming Lowcountry Produce. Q on Bay is open for lunch, dinner and late snacks like the chef’s daily egg rolls (imagine brisket and blue cheese), smoked meats galore and desserts from the chef’s mom. The Old Bull Tavern feels like a refined pub, with a menu that changes with the tide and season, progressive offerings from behind the bar and warm but polished service. The amiable owner John Marshall (think rock star meets forager) brings his savvy style from his Charleston hot spot, Al Di La Tratorria. Shrimp season is in full swing and locals say the Ribaut Social Club’s shrimp and grits are the best in the lowcountry. "Our aim is to capture the incorrigible spirit and convivial atmosphere of the original Ribaut Club,” says owner Frank Lesesne. “In its heyday, the Club hosted performances, grand parties, dances and even gambling—a raucous getaway from buttoned-up social strictures of the time.” Executive Chef Byron Landis serves modern elevated cuisine for dinner and Sunday brunch in the dining room on the ground floor at Anchorage 1770 Inn. Stay at the Inn, a mansion with a colorful history, now with luxe accommodations, sprawling porches, breakfast on the shady front porch and bikes for exploring. The high thread-count bedding will lull you, creating a safe harbor. But get up! Get out into your engaging Beaufort summer day where the energy of a community that truly adores its history and is crafting its future will enfold you and put you in a happy place. 24
