On the bison tours, you will ride through some of the state’s highest quality prairie, the result of countless hours of stewardship efforts. Bison grazing and wallows create micro-habitats that help support prairie diversity at Nachusa.

Become a partner

During your tour, we will invite you to partner with us as advocates for nature in your community, as there are many natural places that are not yet managed. Spread the word, volunteer, or donate to places like Nachusa that protect and restore habitat. Together we all can help natural areas thrive!
