See Thousands Of Snow Geese, Hundreds Of Tundra Swans

Wildlife viewing festivals during the next few weeks will give people the chance to see Tundra Swans, Snow Geese and other species. The events are free. The information below was provided by the Utah Division of Wildlife Resources.

Those who have watched snow geese fly in and out of Gunnison Bend Reservoir call it one of the greatest spectacles of nature. You can see that spectacle Feb. 29, and March 1 and 2, at the Eleventh Annual Snow Goose Festival. The festival will be held at and near the reservoir, just west of Delta. Admission is free.

Seeing and hearing just one tundra swan is enough to make your heart jump. Imagine seeing and hearing hundreds of them. You can at Tundra Swan Day, which is set for March 8. Viewing will take place at three sites—the Farmington Bay Waterfowl Management Area west of Farmington, the Salt Creek WMA west of Corinne and the Bear River Migratory Bird Refuge west of Brigham City.
