Bison Archeology in Glacier National Park with Kyle Langley - Watch Party
Program Type:Books, Authors & Writing, Culture, History, Lectures & Discussion Groups, Nature and Animals
Watch Party at NVPL - Cohosted MLN Virtual Program
Long ago, before the Going the Sun Road or the Sperry Chalet, Glacier National Park was once home to bison. While today visitors can still experience bears, goats and moose, the bison no longer graze in the meadows and valleys below the towering peaks. This presentation will explore what is known and not known about the bison who once roamed in these rugged mountains and the people who for centuries lived with and relied on these bison. This presentation will also review recent research into bison in Glacier, including some preliminary results which have yet to be published.
Note: This event is a live stream program; the presenter will not be in-person at NVPL.
