Establish Rotational Bison Pasture

Chickasaw National Recreation Area » Establish Rotational Bison Pasture » Document List

Chickasaw National Recreation Area is proposing to establish two new pastures in the Prairie Uplands of the Platt National Park National Historic Landmark District (Platt Historic District) and used as rotational pastures for the bison. This project will require removing 23 acres of invasive eastern red cedar trees (Juniperus virginiana) from around the Superintendent's Residence (Area 2); installing about 6,600 feet of tall-game fence around Pasture Area 1 and about 5,900 feet of tall-game fence around Pasture Area 2; constructing a new overlook and parking area east of U.S. Highway 177; and installing two new water troughs and water lines.
