  • Pure buffalo: An update on a herd of genetically pure bison that will be released just north of Fort Collins in November, with Jack Rhyan, a USDA wildlife specialist.
  • Birds and the bees:  Josh Melby, of Colorado Parks and Wildlife, talks about the Greater Prairie Chicken Festival, mating rituals included.
