GREAT SALT LAKE WETLANDS NATURE CENTER
Located in the heart of the Great Salt Lake wetlands, Farmington Bay is a birder’s paradise. Millions of migratory birds and shorebirds visit this unique ecosystem area each year. This remarkable place is within just a few minutes’ drive of the densely populated Wasatch Front.
The new Center serves as a gateway to the Great Salt Lake and its wetlands. The wildlife education center includes an exhibit hall where educational displays introduce visitors to the vast site. An outlying classroom contains teaching and laboratory space. An assembly hall with 200 seats will be open for community and educational events. The courtyard contains public art and a shady place to gather and rest. The project beckons visitors outside using transparency to showcase the amazing wetlands environment.
