“The American Buffalo" by Ken Burns is now available on PBS — Learn More


Learn, visit and celebrate with us.

There’s nothing like seeing Buffalo in person roaming the landscape once again, on land that was home to them for thousands of years. Plan a visit to make connections with the buffalo, and learn about the effort to restore relationships between the animal, people, and land.

Field Trips

Studying Buffalo is one thing…seeing is another. We invite school groups to plan guided field trips to view the Buffalo, discuss their habitat and history, and participate in activities.

Please contact us below to plan your visit.

Tours and cultural activities may be based on age group, school curriculum, seasonal wildlife behaviors, harvested tools, and more. We are typically booked out a month in advance. Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday mornings are best between 9 am – 12 pm.
