Porcupine Viewing Day
Porcupine Viewing Day

Join us for a unique wildlife viewing event as we look for porcupines at the Ouray National Wildlife Refuge! Photographers welcome!

Date & time

Saturday, March 16
9 a.m. to 12 p.m.

Address

19001 Wildlife Refuge Rd
19001 Wildlife Refuge Road
Randlett, UT 84063

Have you ever had a chance to see a porcupine in the wild? If not, please join us at the Ouray National Wildlife Refuge as we explore the woods in search of Utah's sleepy, native residents.

We are partnering with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service to give Utah residents a unique opportunity to see our local rodents as they slumber and forage in the nearby refuge canopy. This is an incredible opportunity, especially for any wildlife photographers, as these rodents exist in large numbers near the refuge.

What to expect:

  • Meet at 9 a.m. at the Ouray National Wildlife Refuge visitor's office parking lot. Please call the Refuge at 435-545-2522 (ext. 112) if you need directions.
  • This is a great time of year to experience wildlife in one of the Uintah Basin's hidden little secrets. There is a high chance you will also see many eagles, birds, mule deer and other wildlife species that frequent the refuge.
  • We will have a briefing in the parking lot to discuss the event logistics before heading out in search of the porcupines.
  • These are wild animals, and although we are very likely to see them, it may be from a distance.

What to bring:

  • Binoculars ( We will have extra binoculars for your group if you need them.)
  • Water and food for the day.
  • Dress for the weather. There are no amenities in the area, so plan accordingly.
