Time of Event: 12:00 pm - 3:00 pm
Event Site: Wichita Mountains Wildlife Refuge
Event Description: Join us for the Refuge's annual bison auction. Every October, Refuge staff gathers and sorts these wild, iconic animals in preparation for the annual sale. The Refuge doesn't supplement the native prairie grass with hay or pelleted feed in the winter, so the herd has to be kept below 650 animals to avoid damaging the grasslands. Excess animals of all ages are sold at the auction.
