Bison’s Bluff will engage children in active and passive play in a natural setting. This unique area features natural materials (logs, boulders, sand, etc.) and manufactured items that mimic natural rock outcroppings, fallen logs, a flowing stream, wetland, beaver lodge and other features. The site also will include hidden nooks for sitting and engaging in imaginative play.
The Foundation, a 501(c) (3) organization, is dedicated to providing resources for the preservation of open space, conservation, nature and recreation in Schaumburg.
