DELTA — Birdwatchers can flock to the Utah Snow Goose Festival Feb. 22-24 at Gunnison Bend Reservoir.

Admission is free. As many as 20,000 geese — mostly snow geese — have been at the reservoir during past festivals.

Attendees should bring binoculars or a spotting scope to view the geese and not get too close to avoid scaring the geese away.

“We’ll provide spotting scopes so you can get a close look at the geese,” said Bob Walters, Watchable Wildlife program coordinator for the Division of Wildlife Resources. “We’ll also be available to answer any questions you have.”
