The Great Salt Lake Shorelands Preserve is a unique system of salt and fresh water marshes, ponds, pools, sloughs and mudflats. It is a rich feeding ground for tens of thousands of migrating birds, which use the Great Salt Lake as a resting point on their journeys from Canada to points in Central and South America. In fact, some of the largest gatherings of wildlife ever recorded on the Great Salt Lake have been observed here.
The innovative visitor center at the Great Salt Lake Shorelands Preserve offers you the chance to experience and learn about the wetlands and its birds while keeping your feet dry!

We are the ultimate backyard nature shop. We strive to help families enjoy wild birds. Birds are a wonderful keyhole into the natural world. As a valuable community resource, our outreach programs provide education including:
- Nature/Bird Walks
- Seminars and presentations
- Scouting groups
- Home & Garden Clubs
- Civic Clubs
- Birding Clubs
- Our aim is to foster appreciation for the natural world among people of all ages, and particularly to help children enjoy their backyard birds. We believe that as individuals become connected with nature through feeding and watching wild birds, they will gain appreciation and respect for the natural world.
The mission of the Davis Arts Council (DAC) is to “strengthen and enrich our community through the power of the arts.”
The heart of our mission rests on a starry summer night at the Kenley Amphitheater, which we consider to be the “front Porch” of Layton City and northern Davis County. Each summer, DAC’s “Summer Nights with the Stars” season of music, theatre, and dance brings an eclectic mix of local, national, and international performers right to the “front porch” of Layton City and northern Davis County. Performances have included the incredible talent of Chicago, Olivia Newton-John, Foreigner, The Beach Boys, Judy Collins, Huey Lewis & The News, Three Dog Night, Mary Chapin Carpenter, and so many more.
As accessibility is a key component to fulfilling our mission, DAC presents many free programs and services as well, including our “Free Sunday Night Concert Series” at the Kenley Amphitheater; Active Stages: Arts in Education, seen by over 10,000 Davis County Students annually; “ Snow Horse Visual Arts Gallery,” a partnership with the Davis Conference Center; and the “Davis Arts Chamber Music Series”. We then conclude our programmatic year with a holiday celebration of music we like to call “DAC the Halls.”
The Davis Arts Council’s vision is to be an exemplary community arts organization recognized for presenting the highest-quality artistic programs that are accessible year-round to our entire community.
In 1995, the Davis Arts Council partnered with Layton City, corporate sponsors, and private donors to build the Edward A. Kenley Centennial Amphitheater.
Since that time Davis Arts Council has proudly packed it each summer with some of the greatest talents of our time: Chicago, The Doobie Brothers, Foreigner, Styx, and Olivia Newton John to name only a few.
We also feature dozens of local performers yearly and are proud to showcase the wealth of talent Utah has to offer.
The Kenley is right in the heart of Layton Park and can hold 1800 people at capacity. In addition to the serene landscaping and view of the mountains, you’ll also often see a flock of geese fly over. We like to think of the Kenley as one of the many gems of Layton.
If you’re interested in renting the amphitheater, contact Layton City Parks and Recreation at (801) 336-3900.
