Sand Springs is celebrating a big gift to a big project. The Sand Springs Park Friends on Tuesday accepted a $50,000 gift from Irv Frank.

Frank was one of the original landowners of what is now know as the Keystone Ancient Forest Preserve.

The Preserve is a 1,300 acre site of old growth forest on the shore of Keystone Lake that's been set aside for its ecological significance.

Frank's gift will allow the City of Sand Springs to build a gravel road and parking area so the Preserve can eventually be opened to visitors.
