Are you interested in birds? Don’t know much about them? But you want to know more?
Head for Antelope Island State Park on Saturday, where they’ll be teaching birding for the non-birder.
Where: Antelope Island State Park, 4528 W. 1700 South, Syracuse
Admission: Regular park admission applies: $9 per vehicle; $6 per vehicle for Utah seniors 62+; $3 cyclists and pedestrians
(People who love bird-watching talk that way.)
Join the park’s naturalist from 10 a.m.-noon on Saturday, March. 3, and learn some birding basics. Bring your binoculars, if you have them. Meet at the visitors’ center, but be prepared to spend some time outside.
Regular admission prices apply, but there’s no additional fee for the fine, feathered event.
