Just southwest of Garden City, the Sandsage Bison Range Wildlife Area is home to the oldest publicly owned bison herd in Kansas – bison have been there since the 1920s. The range was established in 1916 by President Woodrow Wilson – it was formerly part of the Kansas National Forest.
The range preserves more than 3,700 acres of Sandsage Prairie, home to mule deer, black-tailed prairie dogs and western meadowlarks in addition to the bison. The bison herd has continued to grow, with tours and other activities now available such as wildflower walks, guided bison tours and other educational events.
