17 head of Wood Bison (sakāwmostos) are within our designated ranch area in Martin Lake. Over the winter our bison have been foraging and been given hay to help them stay fed. Our bison caretakers are still learning fast on how to care for these majestic beasts within our home. A handling facility to track and manage our herd is being designed so that we can separate our herd as needed. Also, the total area originally designated for fencing is 700 acres in total. A big area is needed so our bison can thrive and have the room to grow for years to come. The Lands department will be seeking members to help build these initiatives. I know the herd is new to WCFN but I know together we can do great and live alongside these animals. Once our herd builds and in times of need, our bison will be there for us.
