Bison Hike - September 8

Updated:

Saturday, September 8 at 10 AM - 12 PM

Prairie State Park

128 NW 150th Ln, Mindenmines, Missouri 64769

Fall is nearly upon us, and the prairie is reaching its full height. Some grasses and wildflowers reach more than eight feet tall. It would be possible to overlook a bison in such vegetation. The asters and goldenrods are apparent. Come out to the park for a guided bison hike to see what the prairie has to offer this time of year. Don't forget your cameras! Be prepared for a two-mile hike over uneven terrain.

Bringing water, snacks, a hat and sunscreen, and wearing sturdy shoes is recommended. Binoculars will be useful in looking at bison as well as other wildlife that we may see. Dress for the weather; but shorts are not recommended. Please call 417-843-6711 to register.
