With the signing of the National Bison Legacy Act on May 9, 2016 by former President Barack Obama, the bison became our official national mammal, to be celebrated the first Saturday of November. Prairie State Park will recognize this momentous occasion with a day-long event at the park.
There will be bison chili to sample at noon and educational bison activities and programs throughout the day. Learn how the Native Americans utilized this animal for food and toolmaking and how such an iconic animal was driven to the brink of extinction.
