Salt Lake City | May 28, 2014

The Nature Conservancy in Utah invites you to connect with nature by coming to an open house at its Great Salt Lake Shorelands Preserve, 30 minutes from the Salt Lake City-metro area. With a unique mix of marshes and ponds, the preserve provides habitat and abundant food sources for a variety of waterfowl and shoreland birds, making it one of the premier bird migration stops in North America. 

People can enjoy the award-winning visitor’s facility featuring an open-air pavilion, a one-mile boardwalk through prime bird habitat, and a 30-foot-high observation tower. Visitors will find more than 34 exhibits offering lessons about the lake, surrounding area and birds. 

Guided tours at the top of every hour are part of this FREE event. Plus, Girl and Boy Scouts can earn a patch on site by participating in the activities.
