A Prairie Legacy: The Bison and Its People

July 27, 2022 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Take a deep dive into our shared prairie history.

This tour combines the popular Bison Safari and Big Canoe experiences with the sights, sounds, smells and tastes of our shared prairie history – leaving you with a one-of-a-kind experience you won’t soon forget.

Venture through the aspen forest onto the open prairie, where you will experience a close-up encounter with 30 grunting, munching bison. Test your skills as you power a mighty Voyageur canoe around the lake. Explore a Plains Cree Tipi and marvel at the design and functionality — cool in summer and warm in winter, offering a respite from the prairie winds. Step inside a one-room pioneer sod house and feel the smoothness of a hand-crafted black spoon.

 

Please note

While in the Bison Prairie enclosure you must remain on the bus at all times.

The bus does not accommodate wheelchairs; passengers must be able to board independently.

Tours are dependent on weather and ground conditions; we may have to cancel or postpone a tour.
