Our Mission Statement
The VBJ Foundation will bring to fruition the scientific, educational and cultural potentials of the Vore Buffalo Jump and present them as a significant part of our human heritage.
Summer is over and we are closed.
For the past 45 years, the projectile points excavated from the Vore Site sinkhole have been studied at the University of Wyoming. This year, the collection was returned to the VBJF Board. A new display has been created to showcase some of the approximately 200 points in the collection.
Please also consider renewing your annual membership in the VBJF at this time.
Much yet to learn…and a great place to learn it.
