Great Salt Lake Bird Festival

The Great Salt Lake Bird Festival will run May 15-19, 2008.

The festival provides a chance for people to learn about and see a wide range of birds and animals. It includes workshops, displays, field trips and other activities. Hawkwatch International will conduct one workshop. The festival is centered at the Davis County Events Center, 151 South 1100 West, Farmington, Utah.

The wetlands around the Great Salt Lake are important habitat for migrating birds, and also local populations. Festival field trips go to wetland sites, and also to other productive birding sites around the region.

The keynote speaker this year will be Bruce Thompson, a natural science education specialist. Writer Rosalie Winard will be a special guest at the festival.

See the festival website for more details.
