Farmington Bay Waterfowl Walk Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"The Great Salt Lake Nature Center at Farmington Bay Waterfowl Management Area is a great place to observe four different types of habitat: upland, emergent marsh, big open water, and riparian. Different birds and animals frequent each type of habitat, including a range of raptors and hundreds of other species.

These marshy wetlands are a waterfowl sanctuary, and in 2010 a nature trail was created that circles through sections of these habitats to take birding to the next level. Famous for the numerous bald eagles that winter here, the nature center also sees international visitors, especially during February, the height of the season, when the on-site bald eagle count ranges from 100 to 400. This easy, pleasant trail provides bridges over marshy areas and observation decks with benches for sitting, waiting, and enjoying the birding experience. It is a peaceful foray perfect for families and is wheelchair accessible."
