OKLAHOMA CITY – Governor Mary Fallin today is letting Oklahomans know about the release of the Chickasaw National Recreation Area Quarter on November 14, 2011. The release of the Chickasaw Quarter marks the tenth release in the America the Beautiful Quarter Series, a twelve-year program honoring the National Parks and sites throughout the United States and Territories.
According to details released by the United States Mint, the Chickasaw National Recreation Area Quarter Launch Ceremony will be held in Flower Park in Sulphur, Oklahoma, on Wednesday, November 16 at 11 a.m. C.T. Governor Fallin encourages residents to visit the public ceremony, and celebrate both the release of the coin and the 104th Anniversary of Oklahoma’s statehood.
A visit to the Chickasaw National Recreation Area provides residents the opportunity to enjoy the beauty of nature through driving tours, hiking & biking, watching wildlife, fishing & hunting, and picnicking. “Our state is full of natural beauty, and the Chickasaw National Recreation Area provides approximately 10,000 acres of land to explore and enjoy,” said Governor Fallin.
