Work with bison: 

America's mammal

In Yellowstone, bison move through the landscape with the change of the seasons. Work with park researchers to collect vegetation samples at specified sample sites and gather information about bison presence. Data will help the park understand how bison interact with their environment.

Partner Profile

Rick Wallen has been the chief wildlife biologist for the bison program at Yellowstone National Park since 2002.  Prior to his position in Yellowstone, Wallen studied a number of different ungulate species in the National Park around the American west. Now a resident of Gardiner, Montana, the only town in the world that peacefully cohabits with wild bison, he sees the critical role that educational programs play in fostering appreciation and stewardship of wildlife.
