Buddy Bison is very pleased to be National Park Trust’s lovable woolly mascot who encourages kids to “explore outdoors, the parks are yours!” Buddy is an avid outdoorsman who loves all parks and public lands. He also loves to work with children of all ages and travels to schools and parks across the country.

He is honored to be featured in the National Geographic Kids book, Buddy Bison’s Yellowstone Adventure, written by National Park Trust Advisory Board member, Dr. Ilona Holland. Equally exciting is the fact that the Bison Legacy Act, signed by President Obama, has made the bison our first national mammal!
