If you answered yes, the Great Salt Lake Nature Center wants you as a volunteer naturalist.

The center is just north of the Farmington Bay Waterfowl Management Area west of Farmington.

"Our spring field trip season isn't that far away," says Diana Vos, Great Salt Lake Nature Center director. "We're looking for people to help us run field trips and nature tours. These activities happen during the day. They're a lot of fun."

Vos is also looking for volunteers to staff the nature center on weekends and to help her with special wildlife viewing events.

If you'd like to volunteer, call Vos at 801-589-2373. You can also email her at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

The Great Salt Lake Nature Center is at 1700 W. Glovers Lane in Farmington. You can learn more about the center on the Nature Center website.

The Farmington Bay WMA the center is part of includes 18,000 acres of prime wetland habitat. About 5 million birds, representing 200 different species, stop at the WMA during their annual migrations. About 60 species stay at the WMA to nest.
