Mark your calendars for the MnBA's Spring Education Conference sponsored by Mosquito Park Enterprises and the Round Lake Winery & Vinyard. Due to COVID-19, we had to cancel the 2020 conference that was to be hosted at the winery in Round Lake, Minnesota. However, we are excited that the winery will host in 2021!

Our speaker/topic list includes:

  • Jim Matheson – National Bison Association Projects and Updates
  • Jim Mead – Ice Age Mammoths & Bison of SD and MN

  • Scott Ellenbecker of the Round Lake Winery & Vinyards & Rod Sather of Mosquito Park Enterprises
  • Adam Ulbricht - Minnesota Bison Association
  • Chef Brendan and Chef Scott - Challenges of restaurants that serve Bison
  • Nick Ward - Ward Laboratories 
  • Chad Zibel – University of Minnesota and the Savannah Project

A full agenda with additional speakers will be released soon.

We hope you'll join us in southwestern Minnesota for a weekend of education, wine, great company and plenty of bison!
