The Nature Conservanay's Bison Herd Expands Onto New Prairie and Soon With New Calves

DES MOINES, Iowa – The historically and genetically valuable bison at The Nature Conservancy’s Broken Kettle Grasslands Preserve will graze another 275 acres as one more gate is opened for the new herd on Iowa’s largest contiguous native prairie. The 28 bison, moved to Broken Kettle in October 2008, has spent most of the winter on more than 150 acres. Opening the gate will give the small herd access to 500 acres and less viewing possibilities by the public as they are able to go farther back on the Conservancy property.
