Bison In A Box: After a brief presentation by AWCC staff members, your students will have the chance to follow a guided video and manuals to restore the wood bison skeleton to its full size and shape! This kit consists of a real wood bison skeleton along with fasteners and all the necessary tools to rebuild the skeleton. As the largest mammal in North America, wood bison once lived in Alaska and were thought to have gone extinct about 100 years ago. After discovering a small herd in Canada, AWCC brought a small population of bison to Alaska and began our own herd. In March of 2015, we helped to reintroduce the wood bison to the Lower Innoko/ Yukon River area – approximately 300 miles west of Anchorage. Cost: FREE Age: Recommended for 6th grade and above. Duration: Up to 2 weeks
