In recognition of National Bison Day the Forest Preserve District of Will County and Midewin National Tallgrass Prairie are again partnering to offer the "Bison Crawl." Joined by local businesses and organizations, the program will include several stops in Southwest Will County, offering different ways to celebrate our official national mammal – the bison. At the Forest Preserve's stop, District staff and the Ruhter family from Ruhter Bison Farm will be on-site to talk all things bison, including bison interpretation with furs, skulls, etc., and bison agriculture. Prairie ecology hikes will also be offered and, back by popular demand, the bison chip throwing contest is sure to once again be a crowd favorite.
