Bison Back Home on the Range in Larimer County

If you have never had the opportunity to visit this Open Space in Larimer County either by foot, horse or bike you should. Rich in PaleoIndian history, with a Clovis site and buffalo kill site, this is a true open space gem.

On November 1st an iconic species, buffalo, was returned to the prairie. Ten bison, carrying on the valuable line of genetics from the Yellowstone herd but without the disease brucellosis, now roam 1,000 fenced acres of the Red Mountain Open Space and Soapstone Prairie Natural Area. The buffalo are only visible from the roadway near the Soapstone Prairie access.
