365 Things to Do in Memphis #47: See the Bison at Shelby Farms

Posted by Holly Whitfield | February 16th 2012 1602 2

Assignment #47 in the 365 Things to Do in Memphis is to hang out with some of the most majestic creatures in Memphis.

American bison at Shelby Farms, Memphis, Tenn.

Shelby Farms Park is home to a large herd of American Bison. They live on a 50 acre range in the middle of the park. You can see them by driving through the park, but there are a few places where you can park and get a little closer.

You can also support the park by adopting one of the large critters. The money raised through the adoptions is used to care for the herd.

Go there:

I write about what’s going on with Memphis music, food, arts, events, sports, people, and culture. Memphians love Elvis and barbeque with a passion that must be seen to be believed, but there is so much more to this place.
