Carnegie Buffalo: The Story Behind the Beast

Oct 26 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am

- Free

Hundreds of children visiting the Carnegie Library have tales of the Bison head that watched guard over them from the stairwell. Their stories range from fear and loathing to one of wonder and delight. But where did this iconic beast come from? Come learn its history, its association with the Old Settlers Day, and how it ended up at the Carnegie Library.

This program is part of Bison Week co-sponsored by the Carnegie Historical Museum and Jefferson County Conservation. Bison Week is celebrating the new Bison head mount and hide donated to the Jefferson County Park Nature Center by Frank Redeker.

Pre-registration is not required. For more information, please call (641)-472-4421 or email Naturalist@JeffersonCountyConservation.com.
