Buffalo Field Campaign 2011 Calendar

July 12, 2010

The Buffalo Field Campaign is excited to announce the release of the first ever calendar focused exclusively on America’s only continuously wild population of bison.  Wild Bison 2011 is a spectacular celebration of the beautiful bison. The calendar was compiled and produced by Buffalo Field Campaign, and features photographs submitted by our supporters or shot by BFC volunteers. Each month offers a seasonal perspective on wild bison in and around the Yellowstone Ecosystem and highlights their natural history.

Wild Bison 2011 combines superb photos, artwork, facts, stories, and poems to convey the spirit of wild bison.

These beautiful calendars cost $15.00 (including shipping) and are available on BFC’s merchandise page or by sending a check to:

Buffalo Field Campaign
P.O. Box 957
West Yellowstone, MT 59758

The calendars can also be ordered from the website of The Buffalo Field Campaign. http://www.buffalofieldcampaign.org

Please email Mike Mease for information on retail purchase or distributing calendars in your community. mease@wildrockies.org

I am honored to have two pieces of my art work included in this calendar.  I hope that you will consider buying these calendars for gifts for others and for yourself or making a donation to the Buffalo Field Campaign.  BFC is the only group working in the field every day
in defense of the last wild buffalo population in the U.S. Your support will help to preserve the Yellowstone Buffalo.
