BEAVER — On Aug. 4, the Division of Wildlife Resources will host its annual Goat Watch on the Tushar Mountains east of Beaver. The event is free.

The trip will begin at 7:30 a.m. at the convenience store at the bottom of exit 109 on the south side of Beaver off I-15. From there, participants will caravan to the top of the Tushar Mountains. The top is about 11,500 feet above sea level.

Via state Route 153, it will take about one hour and 45 minutes to reach the viewing site from Beaver. There will be binoculars or spotting scopes available for those who need them. Those who have their own viewing equipment are encouraged to bring it.

Participants also should bring water, a hat, a jacket and a sack lunch. It's highly recommended to travel in a vehicle that has high ground clearance.

For more information, call the DWR's southern region office at 435-865-6100.
