Bison Day at Neal Smith National Wildlife Refuge

The Neal Smith National Wildlife Refuge is inviting the public to a day of education and fun from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 28, to celebrate celebrate Bison Day.

The event is free and open to all ages.

Bison Day festivities will be ongoing throughout the day and include guided bus tours through the bison enclosure, archeological and Native American displays, a weaver’s guild demonstration, arts and crafts, games, rope-making and a book signing by area authors.

In addition, at 2 p.m., an Iowa State University bison researcher, Peter Eyheralde, will present some of the interesting things he has learned about the bison at Neal Smith NWR. A bison chip throwing contest will complete the day’s activities, with prizes for the winners.
