As of May 9th, 2015, with the signing of the National Bison Legcy Act by former President Barack Obama, the bison is our official national mammal to be celebrated the first Saturday of November. Prairie State Park will help celebrate this momentous occasion with a day-long event starting with a guided bison hike, followed with sampling bison chili at noon and educational bison activities and programs. Learn how the Native Americans utilized this animal for food and tool making and how such an iconic animal was driven to the brink of extinction.
