Birds of the Great Salt Lake Wetlands Tours

The Great Salt Lake and its wetlands are globally significant migratory stop over and nesting area for millions of birds, and consequently has some great opportunities for bird watching.. Join us as we explore the Lake and its different habitats, and experience the birds that live here. The Lake is very large and birds move around a lot, so over the course of the year the best places to bird change from week to week, and even day to day. Thus, we will have trips in different places depending on where the most interesting birds are that week. We will announce with anticipation the meeting site and meeting time.
