Spring in the Great Salt Lake provides essential habitat for millions of migrating and breeding birds that thrive in our climate. Farmington Bay, Utah is home to more than 200 species, and nearly 60 are known to nest there. Some species you'll find in the springtime are Western and Clark’s Grebes, American White Pelicans, White-faced Ibis, Sandhill Cranes, Black-necked Stilts, American Avocets, and Snowy Plovers.

Lecture by Mary Anne Karren: 

I'm a Salt Lake City-based wildlife photographer exploring how to use my tools as an artist and photographer to benefit birds and their habitat. My current project focuses on the rapidly disappearing Great Salt Lake, largest saline lake in the hemisphere and lynchpin habitat for ten million migratory birds. My work juxtaposes the vibrant bird life of Great Salt Lake with its otherworldly landscapes.
