Doug Miller, a former television reporter known to thousands of Utahns as "Mr. Outdoors," will be honored today as a new area of marshland near Farmington is dedicated in his name.
Miller, who worked in broadcasting for more than 30 years, was best known for the outdoor adventure program "Outdoors With Doug Miller" on KSL-TV and KUTV. He died unexpectedly in 2006 from an infection related to a colon disorder.
At 10 a.m. this morning, Ducks Unlimited will formally dedicate a 370-acre portion of the Farmington Bay Waterfowl Management Area as The Doug Miller Unit. A program honoring Miller's extensive conservation work on behalf of waterfowl habitat will feature guest speakers and an unveiling of the site's official sign.
Today's ceremony is not open to the public, but Miller's friends and fans are encouraged to remember him by visiting the area named in his honor.
