Join Sacajawea Audubon on Monday, March 10th for a program on the American Bison. Jim Bailey is a retired professor of wildlife biology at Colorado State University, and will present excerpts from his recent book, American Plains Bison: Rewilding an Icon. Dr. Bailey will review the status of wild bison in the USA south of Canada. He will address three questions: What are wild bison? What is the status of wild bison in the USA? What can we do about it? He will discuss the meaning of wildness, in contract to domestication. Based on travels and interviews with bison managers, he will summarize the wildness status of 44 conservation herds of plains bison in the U.S. His conclusions provide useful background for considering ongoing controversial issues of bison conservation in Montana. Copies of the book will be available for sale and signing.
The Sacajawea Audubon Society meets the second Monday of the month (September through May) at 7:00 p.m., at the Hope Lutheran Church, 2152 W. Graf Street (off of South 19th) in Bozeman. We invite the public to attend our meetings and participate in our field trips.
