IT'S BABY SEASON!
There are four newborn bison calves in the Free-Roaming Area meadow. There are also three bighorn lambs - and more babies on the way.
Visit the Free-Roaming Area on a Discovery Tram Tour for a chance to see the babies for yourself, along with elk, moose, caribou, trumpeter swans and more.
Your tram driver is a friendly naturalist who narrates the tour with fun animal facts and interesting stories about the history of Northwest Trek. Each tour is different!
