It’s 1884 and you journey to the Osage Hills where, just decades ago, millions of buffalo roamed…

You arrive to find they’re gone. No one has spotted a buffalo in the wild for more  than a year. What happened to the Monarch of the Plains, one of the few species to survive the Ice Age and 500-year droughts?

Join other guests in the search for buffalo before they’re extinct.

Experience their woeful tale and learn about the unlikely band of heroes who saved this majestic species.
