Just north of Pittsburg is a small preserve for the American Bison. If you have never seen one or if this is your only chance to see one I would recommend a brief stop to look them over.

The keystone to the prairie eco-system it is in my mind the mascot of this bioregion. They were the base for the nomadic tribes that roamed the great plains.

After the destruction of tens of millions of individuals there are fewer than 500,000 left. Don?t miss a chance to see a few of those that remain.

There is a hiking trail that starts on the south west corner of the site.

Directions: Just a few miles north of Pittsburg on the east of Highway 69
