American Bison Society News and Updates

The American Bison Society and the Wildlife Conservation Society are holding our fourth Conference and Workshop on Bison Ecological Restoration, September 16-19, 2013, in Big Sky, Montana. The 2013 meeting will bring together stakeholders to examine a set of focal issues facing bison restoration, and includes panels of experts from the US, Mexico, and Canada that will explore 1) Sharing Stewardship-Emerging Models in North America, 2) Media and Public Relations-Telling the Bison Story to America, and 3) Workshop Discussions-the Practice of Ecological Restoration.

In addition to invited presentations and facilitated panel discussions, we will host poster presentations on topics related to bison ecological restoration. The agenda also includes a field trip to Yellowstone National Park, home to the largest free-ranging bison herd in the US; a welcome reception on September 16; a dinner on September 17 and a bison film festival open to the public that will preview quality documentary films about bison on September 18.
