About Buddy Bison™

Who is Buddy Bison®?
 
Fuzzy, brown and ready for adventure, Buddy Bison® wants to explore America's parks with you. 
 
Once upon a time kids ran freely outside, played in creeks, caught bugs and enjoyed nature. These days however, many children are not connected to the outdoors in the same way. Attendance at America's parks and forests has declined steadily each year since the late 1980s.
 
Where's Buddy Bison Been?® inspires kids, families, schools and groups to get outside and share their American Park Experience.
 

Don't Roam Alone

Bring Buddy Bison along as you visit America's local, state, and national parks, wildlife refuges, forests, monuments to connect your kids and families to nature. Don't leave home without him. Click here to see Where's Buddy Bison Been?® so far.

Send us photos, videos, songs and stories.

E-mail them to Buddy@buddybison.org and we'll add them to the Buddy Bison™ Map and our social media profiles.
