Wildlife Viewing Opportunity Features Tundra Swans

Pure white tundra swans are making their annual spring migration through Utah right now and Utah’s Division of Wildlife Resources is hosting two events to help the public view these magnificent birds.

On Saturday, March 4, Tundra Swan Day activities will be held at the Farmington Bay Waterfowl Management Area (WMA) west of Centerville, just north of Salt Lake City.

The following Saturday, March 11, Tundra Swan Day activities will be held at the Salt Creek WMA west of Corinne, northeast of Brigham City.

DWR biologists and volunteer naturalists will be on hand at both locations from 9 am to 3 pm with spotting scopes and parabolic dishes to help people both see and listen to swans. Admission is free.

Naturalists will also conduct "behind the gates" van tours at Farmington Bay for anyone who would like to visit parts of the WMA that are normally closed this time of the year. The van tours are free.
