Bison Anniversary Tour is March 17th

On March 17, 2007, St.Patrick’s Day, 16 Bison were brought to the Refuge from the National Bison Range in Montana. Since then the herd has grown to more than 40! Join us for this special anniversary tour with a special-guest guide. Did we mention there would be cake?

The celebration and tour will take place on Wednesday, March 17, from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m.

The guest lecture, recommended for adults, will take place at the Visitor Center on Saturday, March 20 from 7 p.m. to 8 p.m. During the lecture, Refuge biologist, Tom Ronning, will discuss the bison herd and their importance in prairie conservation.

All programs at the Refuge are free but require reservations. Reserve your space today by calling 303-289-0930.
