Come join us for our last (and rescheduled) field event of 2017: a Bison Day on the Land! This will be an educational and interactive tour of Raymond Wildlife Area (RWA), 15,000 acres of open land managed by the AZ Game & Fish Department, east of Flagstaff on Rte 40. Bison have been at RWA since the 1940s, and this year they got a brand new herd of pure-bred bison. This trip will allow us to be some of the first visitors to the ranch with the new animals.

On this trip we will learn about these ancient native creatures, mangement of bison and the landscape, and how collaborative land and resource management plays into RWA's interactions with its neighbors: the Flying M and Bar T Bar ranches!

You can read about bison in the Fall 2017 issue of Ground Truth!
