Utah Division of Wildlife Resources
CORINNE, Box Elder County — On March 15, the Division of Wildlife Resources will host Utah's annual Tundra Swan Day. Admission is free. The event will be held at the Salt Creek Waterfowl Management Area west of Corinne.
Phil Douglass, regional conservation outreach manager with the DWR, says viewing will run from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.
"Spotting scopes will be available, so you can get a close look at the swans," Douglass says. "If you have your own binoculars or a spotting scope, though, please bring it."
For more information, call the DWR's Northern Region office at 801-476-2740. Download a free fact sheet about tundra swans at www.wildlife.utah.gov.
To reach Salt Creek exit I-15 at Exit 365, and travel west on state Route 83 through Corinne. Stay on Route 83 until you get to 6800 West (Iowa String). Travel north on 6800 West to 6800 North. Travel west on 6800 North toward the site.
Viewers who can't attend the March 15 event can still see swans. When the swan migration peaks in mid-March, as many as 35,000 swans will be in Utah.
Douglass says the management area is one of the best places in Utah to get a close look at swans.
