Saturday, July 14th marks the second Bison Day event at The Nature Conservancy's Broken Kettle Grasslands Preserve. Located just north of Sioux City, Iowa, this Loess Hills preserve contains the largest remaining prairie in Iowa. Nearly 3,200 acres of Conservancy-owned land is home to 85 bison (including 21 new calves this year!), which began as a small herd of 28 when they were introduced in the fall of 2008.
There will be several guest presenters, covering a variety of topics:
Several kids' activities, such as face painting, coloring, and a scavenger hunt, will be taking place throughout the day. The popular Bison Tour will give visitors the unique opportunity to see the bison in their natural habitat from the safety of hay ride. Be sure to arrive early and reserve your spot on the bison tour!
