What’s more fun than a lek full of grouse?
A museum full of birders!
Utah’s Birds at the first annual
Utah Ornithological Society Convention
Monte L. Bean Museum (map)
Brigham Young University, Provo, Utah
|Join your fellow birders at Utah’s
first-ever state-wide meeting about birds and bird-watching. Educational
sessions will improve your birding skills, teach you new field
techniques, and introduce you to new birding locations in Utah. Of
course, there will be great field trips to view the fall migration in
Utah County, and plenty of opportunities to socialize with other birders
from around the state. If you enjoy watching birds in Utah, this is an
event you won’t want to miss!
