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.
