Bison Day on Saturday at Neal Smith NWR

The Neal Smith National Wildlife Refuge invites the public to a day of education and fun in celebration of Bison Day from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday at the refuge.

Activities include guided bus tours through the bison enclosure, archeological and Native American displays, a weaver’s guild demonstration, arts and crafts, games, a rope-making demonstration 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. 

All of the activities are free and open to the public. For more information, contact Megan Wandag at (515) 994-3400 or megan_wandag@fws.gov.
