One side benefit of doing the column was talking to Bill Possiel, president of the Natiional Forest Foundation, and finding out he thought bison could be reintroduced as soon as 2 1/2 years to Midewin, if everything goes right.

wonderful place, my son Zach has been part of the Youth Conservation Corp there for 2 years . I'd love to see the buffalo return to this part of the state.
