Celebrate Earth Day today and every day with a new soundscapes album from Oklahoma state parks.
Whether it is water rushing through the Alabaster Caverns, tree frogs calling in the forests of Beavers Bend, or birds singing at Greenleaf, each of the Oklahoma state parks has distinctive, memorable sounds.
Now you can enjoy ambient sounds from 12 Oklahoma State Parks on major platforms, including iTunes, Pandora and Spotify.
On an Earth Day when many Oklahomans and travelers may be missing the sights and sounds of their favorite state parks, the Oklahoma Tourism & Recreation Department has just released Oklahoma State Parks Soundscapes. Available Wednesday, April 22, the 12-track album lets listeners enjoy the sounds of the parks as they social distance.
“For decades [Oklahoma state parks] have been a place of solitude and enjoyment for countless Oklahomans and visitors,” says Lt. Gov. Matt Pinnell. “While many are unable to access these sites during this time, my hope is that these soundscapes provide peace and relaxation during a stressful time. Like many Oklahomans, I look forward to my first visit to a state park after this is over.”
The album is available free for download or streaming on 32 platforms, including Amazon Music, Apple iTunes, the Google Music Store, iHeart Radio, Pandora, Spotify, and YouTube Music.
Each of the audio tracks features 12 minutes of sounds from a park, including flowing water, wind, blowing sand, and the calls of a variety of birds, insects, and other wildlife.
