Did you know.....

What is the difference between bison and buffalo?

Scientifically, the term "buffalo" is incorrect for the North American species; its proper Latin name is Bison bison. However, common usage has made the term "buffalo" an acceptable synonym for the American bison. (from The American Buffalo in Transition, by J. Albert Rorabacher.)




Park Hours: 8 a.m. to one half hour past official sunset, 
except when reservations are issued.
