The Utah Division of Wildlife Resources and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service will be holding events Saturday celebrating the arrival of thousands of migrating swans to the Wasatch Front.
Free events are scheduled at Salt Creek, west of Corinne; Farmington Bay, west of Centerville; and the Bear River Migratory Bird Refuge, west of Brigham City.
The DWR events will run from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. and will give visitors a chance to see and hear thousands of tundra swans and maybe even a few of the more rarely seen trumpeter swans.
"Each year, a handful of trumpeter swans migrate through Utah with the tundra swans," said Phil Douglass, regional conservation outreach manager for the DWR. "This event gives people a chance to see and hear the differences between trumpeter and tundra swans. Both of the birds are magnificent; they're awesome to see and hear."
