Bear River Migratory Bird Refuge
Historically, the marshes of Bear River Migratory Bird Refuge have been an oasis of water for waterfowl and shorebirds surrounded by arid desert lands. As a key part of the Great Salt Lake ecosystem, the Refuge provides habitat for more than 200 species of birds making it a popular birding hotspot in northern Utah. In spring, summer, and fall, visitors can view American avocets, black-necked stilts, white-faced ibis, and a host of other shorebird, waterfowl, and water bird species.
The Refuge is located approximately 50 miles north of Salt Lake City, Utah. It can be reached from Interstate 15 by taking the Forest Street exit at Brigham City and driving west 13 miles. A new wildlife education center is scheduled to be built in 2004 along Forest Street just west of the Interstate.www.hobogrill.org
