A field trip is planned to Antelope Island Monday afternoon for bird watching and photography. The island is about a 45 minute drive from the university and accessed via a causeway. You can tour the farm. This was a working sheep farm and ranch until (I think) about the 1950s.

The island has interesting geology, migrating birds pass by and there is a herd of buffalo wandering about. The colors of the island seem different to any other place.
