Eccles Wildlife Center

The new George S. and Dolores Doré Eccles Wildlife Education Center at Farmington Bay – located on the Robert N. Hasenyager Great Salt Lake Nature Reserve – provides a gateway to the remarkable Great Salt Lake wetlands. The education center and its nature trails are now open to the public.

The complex that makes up the Eccles Wildlife Education Center includes the L.S. Skaggs Wetland Discovery Classroom, an auditorium and an exhibit building.

While visiting this facility, schoolchildren and other guests can learn about the many animal species that depend on the wetlands for survival. You can see firsthand how active wildlife management plays a key role in maintaining this remarkable habitat.
