Bison were nearly lost from North America! By the early 20th century, bison purchased from Montana and brought to the Elk Island National Park began to slowly rebuild their numbers. Today nearly every plains bison you see in southern Canada, whether in conservation or domestic herds, had an ancestor in Elk Island National Park! We think that's something to celebrate! Join us for this sensory festival celebrating all things bison, from conservation, to culture, to cuisine!
