North America's largest buffalo jump is celebrating the 25th anniversary of the opening of its visitor center!

If you've never made the trip to the First People's Buffalo Jump, I highly recommend it!

Their visitor center is awesome, and the staff is incredibly knowledgeable about the area.

First Peoples Buffalo Jump, located near Ulm, will celebrate this major milestone with themed activities all summer long.

The weekly Jump Talk will be held every Saturday at First Peoples Buffalo Jump from May 26 through September 1.

The Jump Talks will start at 1 p.m., last about 30 minutes, and are free to the public.

Some of the activities are weathered-dependent.

The talks will highlight the significance of the First Peoples' Buffalo Jump and tell how America's First People drove bison over the cliff's edge to provide for their families.
