See Tundra swans at free viewing events

Mar 14 2013 - 5:13pm


National budget cuts may have put the kibosh on one event highlighting the annual migration of tundra swans through Utah, but the swans are still here, and state wildlife officials are staging viewing events at two Top of Utah locations this weekend.

This Saturday, the Division of Wildlife Resources will host Utah's annual Tundra Swan Day at Farmington Bay Waterfowl Management Area west of Farmington and Salt Creek WMA west of Corinne. Admission is free.

The Bear River Migratory Bird Refuge was planning on holding a Tundra Swan Day on Saturday as well, but on March 5, personnel at the refuge announced that the event had been canceled because of cuts in the federal budget.
