July Meeting

Thursday, July 10th, 2014

Evening Field Trip - Inlet Park, Jordan River Parkway.

In place of our Meeting this month we will go birding! Meet at Inlet Park in Saratoga Springs (314 South Saratoga Road) at 7:00 pm. Instead of a meeting we will do a short bird walk along the trails by Inlet park and bird the marsh along Utah Lake and the Jordan River. Park in the parking area on the east side of the road (follow the sign for Inlet Park). Bring bug spray.  Here is a link to a map with a marker on the meeting spot - https://maps.google.com/?q=40.35932+-111.89942
