OUR MISSION

To restore the Official Texas State Bison Herd to their native lands

Proceeds from the Texas State Bison Music Festival, also known as BisonFest, go directly toward the restoration of the Official Bison Herd of the State of Texas.

Located in Caprock Canyons State Park, the bison are direct descendants of the herd started by famed Cattleman Charles Goodnight in 1878. Goodnight began the herd on his JA Ranch in an attempt to preserve the animals before they disappeared forever.
Against all odds, one herd of genetic-related Southern bison have managed to survive all these decades. They were donated to the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department and moved to Caprock Canyons State Park in 1997.

The Official Texas State Bison Herd represents the last remaining examples of the Southern Plains variety of bison.
