SALT LAKE CITY — Bird enthusiasts can see two adult bald eagles — and two eaglets that recently hatched — during free field trips in June.
The Division of Wildlife Resources will host the field trips on Thursday, June 14, and Saturday, June 16, as part of its year-round Watchable Wildlife program.
The trips will leave from the Department of Natural Resources, 1594 W. North Temple, each evening at 6 p.m. The field trips are free, but reservations are required. To reserve a spot, call Bob Walters, Watchable Wildlife coordinator for the DWR, at 801-209-5326.
Participants will follow Walters in their own vehicles, traveling on mostly paved roads to the viewing site near the southeastern shore of the Great Salt Lake.
Walters will have some spotting scopes and binoculars, but people are encouraged to bring their own binoculars or spotting scopes if they have them. "Also, dress for warm weather," Walters said. "And bring some water, mosquito spray and sunscreen."
Participants can leave the viewing site any time during the evening.
