In the near future you will see a bison herd grazing in LaFortune Park. They will look real from a distance, but the herd will be made up of lifesize sculptures donated by NatureWorks. The herd will include bulls, cows, calves, and yearlings, some 25 to 30 sculpted animals in total.

Tulsa County Parks Director Richard Bales says taxpayers won’t be out anything except for the donation of a portion of parkland near the picnic area off Yale Avenue. The process of placing the sculptures will take 15 to 18 months.
