FARMINGTON — Youths will have a chance to learn duck calls and ride in airboats on Saturday.
The Utah Waterfowl Association will host its eighth annual Youth Fair at the Farmington Bay Waterfowl Management Area. The free event, which includes a lunch, starts at 8 a.m. Anyone who is 15 years of age or younger can participate. The Division of Wildlife Resources is one of the event's co-sponsors.
The event also will feature live birds from Tracy Aviary, and the first 300 youths to attend will receive a free duck call. Utah state duck calling champion Brett Wonnacott and Cody King will teach how to call ducks.
Youths also will have an opportunity to ride in an airboat or in boats that are powered by engines called "mud motors," learn how to hunt diver ducks from a layout boat, participate in a duck decoy tossing game, learn how to fish with a bow and arrow, and learn how to catch bass.
The Farmington Bay WMA is near the Great Salt Lake on the west side of Farmington.
