Updates: Oxbow Park, Americorp, and Census Bureau

Did You Know?

The bison herd at Oxbow Park has been deemed one of the most genetically pure.  Most bison have lots of bovine (cow) DNA but bison at oxbow have very few bovine genes. Genetic testing will be done on the heard and, if it suitable, the herd will be used to re-introduce heritage genes to other herds in the U.S.


The Olmsted County Parks were chosen to receive an Americorp team of 8-12 college students this May.  They will be assisting the Park staff to complete many projects.
