What a great year to Celebrate the Year of the Bird! This is the centennial year of America’s Migratory Bird Treaty Act’s ratification and the 20th year for the Great Salt Lake Bird Festival. The partners for the Year of the Bird are National Audubon, BirdLife International, The Cornell Lab of Ornithology, and National Geographic. Look for things you can do to celebrate at #BirdYourWorld. This celebration fits right in with the field trips and workshops we are offering this year.
