Great Salt Lake Bird Festival Runs May 12-16

The annual Great Salt Lake Bird Festival will be held May 12-16. It offers a chance to learn about and see the many kinds of birds that live on the lake's shorelines.

The festival offers workshops, vendors, food, entertainment and field trips. There are also educational activities for children.

This is the 13th year for the popular festival. Bill Thompson III will be the keynote speaker. He is editor of Bird Watcher's Digest, a popular bimonthly magazine that has been published by his family since 1978. He has been an avid bird watcher since the age of eight.

Most activities are centered in the Farmington Bay and Antelope Island areas in Davis County. Some field trips probe areas that are normally closed to the general public.

See the festival website for more information.
