What is it?

Our photographers have been busy exploring the intricacies of the Missouri outdoors. See if you can guess this month’s natural wonder. The answer is revealed below.

Bison

On the back cover and right is a bison at Prairie State Park in Barton County by Noppadol Paothong. A small herd of about 100 bison live at the park. The bison were reintroduced but are considered a wild herd that freely grazes across the park. They reproduce naturally, and calves are born in May and June. Prairie State Park is Missouri’s largest remaining tallgrass prairie landscape. To learn more about tallgrass prairies in Missouri, visit the links listed below.
