Mike DeCook and his family have a unique solution to restoring their 1,000 acre property in Marion County.

They’ve started raising bison.

The family has worked with INHF to protect their land and was featured on WHO-TV Channel 13’s website today for their efforts to help Iowa return to its roots.

“We're adamant about protecting open spaces…kind of a little vision of Wild Iowa, but then also we're a working family ranch,” Mike DeCook told Channel 13.
