In February 2017, Parks Canada began a 5-year pilot project to reintrude North America's largest land mammal (bison) to Canada's first national park (Banff).  Join the Bow Valley Naturalists and Karsten Heuer for some behind-the-scenes stories of the effort to restore this iconic animal to a place where it's been missing for 140+ years.  

Karsten Heuer is the Bison Reintroduction Manager for Banff National Park, a job he describes as the "most stimulating" in a 25-year career as a Park Warden and biologist in Alberta and the Yukon.
