    Colorado has been at the center of bison recovery efforts since the early 1900s. In 2007 a conservation herd of sixteen bison was moved from the National Bison Range in Montana to the Rocky Mountain Arsenal Wildlife Refuge in Adams County, Colorado. The herd has since expanded to a population of more than 180 in 2020.
