Take a trip back to the 1800s when the Plains Conservation Center offers Wagon Tours most Saturdays. Get to know the prairie in a whole new way. On a ride across the plains, participants watch for wildlife in the landscape, from prairie dogs to pronghorn antelope and birds of prey, beneath the great stretching sky while learning about the short grass prairie ecosystem along the way.
Experience what it was like to be a homesteader and a Cheyenne Indian living on the prairie in the 1800s. Take a guided tour of the sod homestead and see the sod homes, schoolhouse and blacksmith shop.
Then, visit the Cheyenne camp to learn about how the Cheyenne lived on the prairie and followed the bison as a semi-nomadic tribe. Tickets are $10 per person.
Most tours start at 10:30 a.m. but there are adjustments with the seasons, so you may find some in the afternoons.
