  • three event highlights
    1. Event participants will be taken on a 45-minute tram tour of the refuge, including views of fall wildflowers and the refuge’s herd of about 200 bison.
    2. Following the tram tour, a Mexican-style meal, including bison taco salad or bison taco burgers, will be served.
    3. During the meal, a historian will present a talk on the Santa Fe Trail during the 1800s. He will be dressed in a period costume and provide details about life along the trail.
    Why you should attend
    “I think this will give [people] an idea of what living on the prairie was like. I think it will be an educational experience during which people will learn about living on the Santa Fe Trail. They also will get a close-up view of the bison and the environment they lived in during the 1800s.”
    — Betty Schmidt, president of the board for the Friends of Maxwell
