Hawkeye Buffalo Ranch Tour”

Thursday, June 21st

Reservations Required
Osborne Nature Center

Osborne’s Older, Wiser, Livelier, Souls will be touring the Hawkeye Buffalo Ranch for the June 21st destination. This year’s theme is “Northeast Iowa Grows It Better.” O.W.L.S. are traveling around Northeast Iowa to find unique farms and businesses who are growing locally.

The Hawkeye Buffalo Ranch will provide a fun wagon ride through their ranch as we search for the herd, while learning about the American Bison and their farm. Designated as a Heritage Farm by the Iowa Department of Agriculture and Land Stewardship, Dan McFarland and his daughter Martha manage a growing herd of grass-fed bison on 500 acres of pasture and timber that has been in the family since 1854.

Make reservations by calling (563) 245-1516 or visit the Osborne Nature Center. Please meet at Osborne Park at 10:00.

The Osborne Center is located on Highway 13, ten miles north of Strawberry Point or five miles south of Elkader. The center is open from 8:00am to 4:00pm, Monday-Saturday, and Sunday noon to 4:00pm. Please call 563-245-1516 for more information or visit www.claytoncountyconservation.org.
