Re-Bisoning the West at Ogden Nature Center
Millions of majestic bison once roamed territory stretching from Alaska to Mexico. This awe-inspiring species, designated the National Mammal of the United States in 2016, has come close to extinction—and great effort is needed to preserve it for future generations. Award-winning journalist Kurt Repanshek provides an in-depth look at the history of bison and present-day endeavors to return this keystone species to the land in his new book Re-Bisoning the West: Restoring an American Icon to the Landscape.
