Register Now For Great Salt Lake Bird Festival
Online registration will begin tomorrow (March 1) for the Great Salt Lake Bird Festival, which will be held May 16-20.
The Festival is centered in Farmington, in Davis County, and includes field trips to birding spots around the Great Salt Lake and throughout northern Utah. The Festival also offers hands on workshops, special presentations, sponsors and vendors, food and fun.
The Festival provided this information about the keynote speaker:
Great Salt Lake Bird Festival is excited to announce the 2013 Keynote Speaker (May 18 2013) will be author, birder and shorebird expert Kevin Karlson. Kevin says his recent experience with Super storm Sandy brought him closer to nature than he wanted to be. He had ocean water lapping on his front lawn (house was spared). Visiting Great Salt Lake next May will be a better way to interact with salt water. Kevin has been to Utah previously, but as a tourist to our red rock country so he is excited to be part of the Festival in northern Utah. In addition to giving the Keynote address, Kevin will also guide a few fieldtrips and sign books. The Festival is excited to let Kevin do what he does best- inspire people (of all ages) to enjoy bird watching more!
The Festival has become very popular and advanced registration is encouraged. (Procrastinators will still be able to participate in some activities but popular field trips will fill up quickly.)
