• National Park Trust's Buddy Bison school program engages culturally diverse children in dynamic conservation and educational activities. We create opportunities for students to visit local, state or national parks and work directly with educators and park rangers who utilize our wooly mascot Buddy Bison and his toolkit as a teaching tool to enhance existing curriculum.
