Road Show Demo

Buffalo Field Campaign Road Show BuffaloonBFC's Co-Founder and Campaign Coordinator Mike Mease is hitting the road again in September and October for his annual BFC Road Show, and he could use your help!

As he has done since 1999, Mike will be visiting communities in Washington, Oregon, and California to share music, stories, video, and discussion—all of which is inspired by the last wild bison. New this year, we are adding Colorado and New Mexico!

Mignon Geli, flutist, is joining us on the road again this year. Mike will also be joined by musician The Unexpected Brass Band. See dates below for times and locations.

Please check our Calendar of Events or the 2019 Road Show Events below for locations, and join our veteran buffalo defenders for an inspiring time!

The roadshow is a series of special events held toward the end of each year, and you can help spread the word for the herd not just then, but all year round! Please check out our Action Opportunities page for more ways you can protect buffalo in your own bioregion!

 

Shuttle: The Salt Lake Express is a shuttle providing transportation from Salt Lake City and other locations directly into West Yellowstone and back. Visit the Salt Lake Express website.

Airports: The nearest and most convenient airport to West Yellowstone is in Bozeman, MT. This is a 90-mile drive on some roads that can get rather snow-packed. Please contact our volunteer coordinator before you make your plans so that we can coordinate rides with others who might be coming in at the same time, and we’ll try to work with you to arrange your arrival and departure plans to coincide with our weekly supply run.

Greyhound: Does not serve West Yellowstone. The closest Greyhound station is Bozeman, MT. As noted above, please coordinate your arrival plans with our volunteer coordinator.

Amtrak: Doesn't come close to here. The nearest stations are Havre, MT; Whitefish, MT; and Salt Lake City, Utah. It's a long bus ride from these places to Bozeman.

Driving: If you plan to drive here in the winter, please allow yourself sufficient time, plus some extra time to travel slowly and safely, and remember that these mountain passes are often hazardous. Make sure you have good tires and either snow tires or chains. It is important for you to know that all through-roads in Yellowstone are closed to cars except for Route 191, which goes along the western park boundary.

IMPORTANT: No matter which mode of travel you choose, please call ahead (406-646-0700) so we will know when to expect you, and before you leave home check for weather conditions on the Montana Department of Transportation Road Report Map.

Buffalo Field Campaign Education and Outreach Tabling

 

Give presentations about BFC

Do you have opportunities to speak to groups of people about BFC?  Perhaps an environmental club, civic group, church, boys or girls club, school, or community college?

Let us know if you are interested in pursuing this type of community outreach, and we will supply you with training. The first step will be to fill out a volunteer application and talk to our volunteer coordinator. When the time has come and you are properly prepared, we will supply you with materials to aid in your presentation. This is a very important part of growing the message of buffalo protection. Thank you for considering it.

Educational Slideshow

Buffalo Field Campaign invites you to become a voice for our last wild migratory bison and Our National Mammal.

This educational slide show gives you everything you need to give a clear, concise and accurate presentation on the natural history and current plight of the American Bison.

By offering this slide show, you can inspire and educate your community groups to Take Action for our country's first national mammal. Click here to view and download.

Please don’t forget that BFC’s buffalo protection efforts are literally fueled by your donations. It is always a good time to help protect the herd with your gift to BFC. Are you ready?
