SANDY — Outdoors and wildlife enthusiasts will have a chance to view mountain goats at the mouth of Little Cottonwood Canyon on April 20.
The Division of Wildlife Resources will hold the event that day from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the park-and-ride lot at the mouth of Little Cottonwood Canyon. DWR biologists will be at the event.
“You’ll get a front-row look at these agile rock climbers using spotting scopes and binoculars that we’ll provide,” said Bob Walters, watchable wildlife coordinator for the DWR. “You can also pick up a poster and a card that will teach you more about mountain goats. And we’ll be happy to answer any questions you have.”
Anyone who wants to see the goats before April 20 can go to the parking lot any time during the day. Fixed-point telescopes are available in the lot to zoom in on the goats. The lot also includes an interpretive panel that explains more about the goats.
Walters says goats are usually visible at the mouth of the canyon from November through mid April. After mid-April, the goats head to higher elevations to spend the summer.
For more information, call Walters at 801-209-5326.
