Not much of anything can live in water as salty as the Great Salt Lake, so those that do have some pretty cool adaptations. Children ages 6-12 are invited to come and learn all about brine shrimp — also known as sea monkeys — on Saturday at 11 a.m.
Meet at Bridger Bay Beach.
If you’re more interested in winged mammals, you can learn how the much-feared, oft-reviled bat is really one of the most important do-gooders in the natural world. Discover some of the wonders of bats beginning at 6 p.m. in the Visitor Center.
There’s no fee for to learn about the sea monkeys or the bats, but regular park admission prices apply.
