FortWhyte Alive – A Prairie Legacy: The Bison and its People

It's just a short walk through an aspen forest to reach the bison herd, but you'll cover a lot of ground during this eco-tour at Fort Whyte Alive. 

Get acquainted with a brawny herd of 30 shaggy Plains bison and learn about the vital role they play in Manitoba's culture and history as sources of food, warmth and even cooking utensils. 

Make like a voyageur and paddle a canoe on one of five lakes, or strap on snowshoes for a bracing overland trek. Duck into a Plains Cree Tipi and you'll be amazed at the ancient engineering skills that went into its construction, keeping inhabitants cool in summer and warm in winter. Visit the sod pioneer house and take a break with a cup of bush tea and a snack of traditional bannock.  

A stopover for Canada geese during the spectacular migration season, Fort Whyte Alive is a destination for nature lovers year-round. Explore on your own, hire a personal naturalist or sign up for one of several short courses on everything from geocaching to foraging for wild edibles. Start with a hearty breakfast or fuel up with lunch at the Buffalo Stone Cafe. Just don't mention those bison burgers in front of the herd.
