Land of the Bison
Bison are a keystone species in North American prairies. Join researcher Pete Eyheralde as he shares the natural history of bison in the eastern tallgrass prairie and looks at new findings from research in Iowa.
Through grazing, wallowing, nutrient cycling, and seed dispersal, bison altered their historic range in ways that are not found in most prairie constructions. Pete has been involved in bison ranching in southern Iowa for the last 20 years and is an Assistant Professor of Biology at William Penn University.
The Des Moines River Water Trail is one of 19 official water trails in Iowa. This is an official Des Moines River Water Trails event co-sponsored by the Iowa Department of Natural Resources and Jefferson County Conservation.
Pre-registration is not required. For more information please contact Brittney Tiller at Naturalist@JeffersonCountyConservation.com or call 472-4421.
