Interpretation with an Altitude!
Buffalo Bill, the Wild Wild West, and Dinosaurs—Wait, What?
Travel above 7,500 feet to visit amazing natural and historical places! Our tour begins with a stop at Genesee Park to see the only city-owned free-ranging bison. Considered one of the country’s wildest herds. Then we’ll go to Buffalo Bill Museum and Grave, where museum staff will provide an overview about the museum and its audience, and answer questions about Buffalo Bill and the Wild West. From there, it is a short ride to Lookout Mountain Nature Center (Jefferson County Open Space), where rangers will talk briefly about the history of LMNC, how it was one of the first nature centers to use recycled/ecologically sound material, and explain the changes they’ve gone through from a stale permanent exhibit to temporary exhibits emphasizing stewardship messages. Weather permitting, the ranger will lead you on a half hour hike. After lunch end your journey at Dinosaur Ridge, one of the world’s most famous dinosaur fossil localities.
