The Bison of Tallgrass Prairie National Preserve

A herd of bison graze on the 1,100 acre Windmill Pasture at the Tallgrass Prairie National Preserve near Strong City. Twenty-two bison now populate the preserve. In 2009, 13 of them were brought from Wind Cave National Park site in the Black Hills region of South Dakota. The park hopes the bison herd will eventually grow to 75-100 and draw more visitors to the site to experience the Flint Hills landscape as it looked when crowded with buffalo.
