Look closely: in the distance, you can see a few bison from the herd living at Tallgrass Prairie National Preserve. The herd, which will eventually number 75 to 100 animals, is made up of genetically pure American bison.

Of all the tallgrass prairie that used to cover the US, only 4% remains, including this nearly 11,000-acre preserve. The park is home to a growing herd of bison.
