LBL Announces New Bison Calf

Land Between the Lakes National Recreation Area says there's a new bison calf at the Elk and Bison Prairie.

The calf was spotted December 9, and LBL says it was probably born during or just before the icy weekend a few days earlier.

LBL says the calf's mother has been very protective of the newborn.

The Elk and Bison Prairie is a drive-through wildlife viewing area and is open from dawn to dusk all year. Admission is $5 per vehicle.

The three-mile trip includes exhibits explaining the significance of the animals and other native wildlife. The prairie is on the Trace near the Visitor's Center.
