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.
Hike time: 10 a.m. - Noon
