Touch real pieces of bison, practice bison communication skills and make a bison storybook oto take home.

From 1 to 2 p.m. Feb. 16, the park will host “Snowy Survival.” Practice survival skills like building a snow den and starting a fire. Open to all ages and abilities.

For all three activities, people are asked to meet at the cart-in site picnic shelter.
