Great Salt Lake Bird Festival

Great Salt Lake Bird Festival

Whether you're an old birding hand who's looking forward to the "Big Sit" (tallying the as many species as possible from a fixed point in 24 hours) or you're new to birding and want to hone your indentification chops with some local experts, you'll find a little something for everyone at the Great Salt Lake Bird Festival.

Visit with HWI staff, volunteers, and education birds in the exhibit hall; drop in for a free workshop or several; check out unique vendors; and reserve a spot on one of the many, expert led, fieldtrips to the local "hot spots." This annual event is a must for anyone who birds in the Salt lake area.

On Thursday, 5/15, from 5-9:30, join HWI's Senior Scientist Dave Oleyar, along with Wendy Wilson and Brian Ferguson, for the Antelope Island Owl Prowl and some nocturnal adventure!

On Saturday, 5/17, at 2:15 pm, Join HWI's Education and Outreach Director, Nikki Wayment, for A fascinating workshop: The Wonderful World of Owls.

Last but not least, Join Nikki Wayment, along with Brian Ferguson and Katie McVey, for an Antelope Island Owl Prowl on Sunday, 5/18, from 5-9:30 pm.

Remember, space for the field trips is limited so reserve your spot today!
