Rent the facility

The Eccles Wildlife Education Center isn't set up to host events, such as weddings, at this time.

In limited circumstances, the center may be used by Utah Division of Wildlife Resources constituent or partner groups during regular open hours. For example, meetings with less than 100 participants that don’t require special audio-video equipment or involve special event catering (boxed lunches are OK). If that is something that might work for your group, please contact the staff at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

Meander the wheelchair- and stroller-friendly trail to experience the unique sights and sounds of the Farmington Bay wetlands. Motorized vehicles, bicycles, horses, hunting and fishing are not allowed. All dogs must be on leash. Please stay on designated trails.
