The American Bison is making a historic comeback on Montana's prairie and we are asking the federal government to provide them additional room to roam.

American Prairie Reserve

The bison move is an important part of our bison management practices. When the population reaches the carrying capacity of the land on which they are permitted to graze, we move bison to other properties or to other conservation herds in order to maintain habitat health. Our herd can only grow as much as the land will allow.

For the herd to reach its full potential, we are asking the federal and state government to provide access for bison to graze over 250,000 acres of public lands where the Reserve has grazing privileges.

We are asking you - our supporters, friends, and family - to be ready to submit a comment to the Bureau of Land Management letting them know that you are in favor of our proposal. Be on the lookout for follow-up instructions on how to submit written comments to the BLM between April 9 - May 9.
