Chris DeCoteau, who directs the Bison program for the Lands Department, led the tour of approximately 50 children who began their tour in Prairie Peoples Park west of N Road and 150 Rd.  Following viewing the buffalo outside, the youngsters went to the Boys & Girls Club where more informative displays were set up about the buffalo by the Lands crew.
