On September 12, 1839 Mary Ann Dyer Goodnight was born. Each year we celebrate her many achievements and the conservation legacy she started that still lives on in the Texas State Bison Herd today. Join us in a tourism seminar at the Panhandle Plains Historical Museum where you can learn more about the Goodnights, cowboy life, early ranching, bison, and much more. We will welcome guest speaker Todd Wilkinson, author of Last Stand Ted Turner's Quest to Save a Troubled Planet and discuss the conservation of the Texas State Bison Herd past and present. The first 150 visitors will receive a free bison burger.
