Sandia Buffalo Herd

A special attraction is the 107-acre Buffalo preserve established by the Pueblo of Sandia to promote the resurgence of the American Bison. They were all but exterminated during the mass slaughter of the eighteen hundreds.

Thanks to efforts such as this Buffalo preserve, the buffalo are now thriving in herds across the West. It is rare, however, to have a buffalo preserve located next to an urban area. We encourage you to experience these magnificent animals in their natural setting while visiting Bien Mur.

The western most extent of the Buffalo preserve boundary is East of Bien Mur and borders the parking lot.

Photography is allowed without any special permits.
