An exhibit at the Western Heritage Center traces the historical treatment of bison, from near-extinction to modern conservation and ranching practices that have brought the population of our national mammal back to more than 500,000.
"Bison: The Past, Present and Future" is on display at the Western Heritage Center through April 7.
The exhibit is provided by the National Buffalo Foundation, Montana Bison Association, Buchanan Capital, Don Woerner, Humanities Montana and the Carbon County Historical Society & Museum.
The Western Heritage Center, located at 2822 Montana Ave., is open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday. A small admission fee is charged.
