November 4th is National Bison Day! Check out these five local ways to appreciate our national mammal:

Catch a glimpse of bison enjoying their sanctuary at Battelle Darby Creek Metro Park. No matter what the weather, you can make the one mile hike out to one of two bison pastures for pastoral views. Or, take it easy with a stop at the nature center where you can view the herd live via a camera feed projected on the wall.

Just outside of the nature center at Battelle Darby Creek Metro Park, don’t miss this majestic bison sculpture by Michael “Smitty” Smith. Find more amazing ways to experience the arts in Grove City here.

View preservation with a purpose when you check out the beautiful bison tree carving in Tanglebrook Park (behind Firestation #201). Two 100-150 year old dead ash trees serve as a canvas for a total of four carvings by local chainsaw artist Ted Scherer.  Kids will also enjoy a playground complete with swings, slides and other fun activities.

Do you have an adventurous palate?  Appreciate bison in a whole new way with a bison burger at the award winning Cimi’s Bistro at Pinnacle Golf Club.  Be sure to order the hand cut fries!

Continue the journey for your taste buds at Tommy’s Jerky Outlet where you can find over 50 varieties of all natural jerky, including bison.  Many varieties are available to sample and the shop also sells a variety of other snacks including salsa and local clover honey.
