LIVE: Support Bison With Online Auction For National Buffalo Museum
National Buffalo Museum Bringing "Bid For Bison" Auction Online For 2nd Straight Year
North Dakotans love their bison. And now you can help support the iconic North Dakota museum dedicated to the animal.
The 2nd annual “Bid for Bison” auction starts Thursday and runs through July 16th. The National Buffalo Museum in Jamestown has hundreds of bison-themed items up for auction from clothes and jewelry, home items and art and collectables.
The money helps the museum promote the buffalo, America’s National Mammal, and take care of its two buffalo herds.
The online auction started out of necessity during COVID. Organizers are hopeful after a successful first virtual auction last year.
Museum Executive Director Ilana Xinos says, “We’ve had an in-person event which we were known for in Jamestown, but when COVID hit we just decided we had to make a change and so we threw together an online auction and it went pretty well. And we decided to do it again this year.”
