Guided Trips & a Good News Bison Story - American Prairie Reserve

March 21, 2012View for printing

This March, we celebrate the homecoming of 71 bison from Canada's Elk Island National Park. At the March 8th bison release, I had the honor of meeting Marcia Pablo and her grandchildren, who are the seventh generation from turn-of-the-century bison conservationist Michel Pablo.

Their presence vividly illustrates the Native American tradition of considering the impact of major decisions on the next seven generations, a concept demonstrated in the work of pioneering conservationists like Pablo whose work directly contributed to this month's bison release.

Your gifts to American Prairie Reserve are helping carry this legacy forward by assembling habitat not only for bison, but many other prairie species. Thank you for being a part of this historic effort.
