Jump Talks, sunrise yoga coming up at First Peoples Buffalo Jump

Several events are coming up at First Peoples Buffalo Jump State Park.

A weekly “Jump Talk” begins May 30 and will be held at 1 p.m. every Sunday through Sept. 5.

The program will be held at the upper visitor area and is about 30 minutes in length.

Visitors will learn how the First Peoples drove bison herds over the cliff and also take in views of the surrounding mountains and buttes. The talks may be cancelled in the event of poor weather and are free with entry to the park.

First Peoples Buffalo Jump State Park is 3.5 miles north of Ulm, just off Interstate 15 at Exit 270.
