Accessibility Information

Tracy Aviary values every guest who comes through our doors. We strive to create spaces and experiences that are engaging, educational, and most importantly, accessible to all. If you need assistance during your visit, our Guest Services staff will be happy to help you. For more information about accessibility services and accommodations, please call Guest Services at 801-596-8500 or email .

Accessibility on Grounds

Elevators are available at the Visitor’s Center and Bird Feeder Café. Wheelchair accessible seating is available in the Outdoor and Indoor Bird Show.  Staff members will happily assist you in finding a seat. Manual wheelchairs are available to borrow in the Gift Shop on a first-come first-served basis. Service animals are welcome on grounds, but must be checked in when paying admission. Service animals are allowed everywhere on grounds except for the Bird Show, Kennecott Wetlands Immersion Experience, Treasures of the Rainforest, Amazon Adventure, and Backyard Birds.

Learning Aids

Social stories are helpful pre-visit guides for guests with developmental disabilities or autism spectrum disorder (ASD). Tracy Aviary’s social story, Let’s Visit Tracy Aviary, introduces guests to a wide range of experiences at the Aviary, such as purchasing admission, attending a Bird Show, and visiting different types of exhibits. 

Copies of Let’s Visit Tracy Aviary are available in the Gift Shop; however, we recommend downloading and reviewing this resource prior to visiting. 

Download our social story here.

Coming Soon

Sensory backpacks will be available to borrow in the Gift Shop in January 2019. They are filled with toys and tools to enhance the experience of guests with developmental disabilities or ASD, such as noise-cancelling headphones, bird figurines, tangle toys, and more.
