Come Watch the Buffalo Roundup

A herd of buffalo roam the open spaces on Antelope Island, in the Great Salt Lake. Every fall state park workers stage a buffalo roundup. Helicopters, horseback riders and four-wheel drive vehicles are used to move the bison from the southern tip of the island to the handling facilities on the north end, where the animals are given health checkups and other maintenance work is performed.

The roundup takes place Oct 29-30, beginning at 8 a.m. The public is invited to observe, from a distance. The best observation spot is Buffalo Point. For more information, please call Antelope Island State Park, (801) 721-9569.
