Rocky Mountains & Prairies Regional Center Upcoming Events
Restoring Bison to the Wind River Reservation Tour and Reception
Imagine thousands of wild bison roaming free on hundreds of thousands of acres along the Wind River Mountains
and Owl Creek Mountains. Imagine Shoshone and Arapaho tribal youth and community members reinvigorating
their historical, cultural and ecological connections with this iconic animal of the plains. We want you to share in
making that vision a reality.
You are cordially invited to an exclusive tour of the Wind River Reservation. The Wind River Tribes have restored
five of the six large species historic to their lands that were nearly decimated by unregulated hunting – bison
are the only species not yet restored. We are embarking on this significant effort to return bison to their
historic tribal homeland.
At the reception, join us for the unveiling of Rolling Thunder, a limited edition sculpture by esteemed artist
Margery Torrey who is generously donating the proceeds to help launch this vision for bringing bison back
to the Winds. Featured on the front is a clay sketch of the piece; the actual will be bronzed.
