BZ 080117 Antelope Island 02-1

A bison roams grazes on the southern half of Antelope Island on Tuesday, Aug. 1, 2017. Much of the southern end of the island was burned in a wildfire one year before.

The idea of allowing ATVs on Antelope Island has resurfaced and is more inappropriate now than ever. The detrimental effects of the increased noise, pollution, associated litter, trail erosion and vehicle traffic on the wildlife, and on the island itself, should be obvious to anyone.

The beauty and value of the island is in the opportunities it provides for quiet solitude, incredible landscapes and amazing wildlife viewing, interrupted only by equestrians, cyclists, runners, and hikers.

We are quickly and steadily running out of places like Antelope Island that offer such attributes. Lets save this one.
