Bison Field Trip to Wind River Reservation

An incredible two day event for supporters of the Tribal Bison Program to experience the majesty of bison in their new home at the Wind River Reservation as well as to learn more about the vison of the program as we move forward.

NWF has been working with tribal and federal partners for over 20 years to return bison to the Wind River Reservation, which overs over 750,000 acres of prime bison habitat, over 550,000 more acres that what is currently available to bison in Yellowstone.
