Buddy Bison Challenge

Will you take the Buddy Bison® Challenge?

Fuzzy, brown and ready for adventure. Buddy Bison™ wants to explore America's parks with you. How many park visits can you make this year? You can visit your national, state, and local parks, wildlife refuges, forests, and historical monuments and bring Buddy Bison™ along.

The RULES are simple:

  1. DOWNLOAD the Buddy Bison™ Challenge.
  2. Record each visit on pages 2-16 of the Buddy Bison™ Challenge.
  3. You can visit a park more than once. Try to do something new each time.
  4. Be sure to include practices and ball games that are held at a park. Buddy Bison asked that you clean up the park after every practice or game.
  5. Take photographs and videos of Buddy Bison™ and send them to npt@parktrust.org.
