Over 60 million American bison once roamed between the Rocky and Appalachian Mountains in North America. They were a keystone species of the prairie, essential to its natural and cultural history. Their foraging and wallowing behaviors once helped foster a diverse prairie landscape for both plants and animals. Wildlife naturalist, George LeRoux, owner of Flint Hills Prairie Bison Reserve and Audubon of Kansas Board Member, will discuss the bison life cycle, ecology, behavior, and history in the Great Plains.
