The annual Great Salt Lake Bird Festival first started in 1999 and has grown over the years to be a medium-size birding festival. Discover Davis, the tourism department for Davis County, Utah organizes this event with the help of a dedicated and passionate Committee that is made up of Utah birding experts. In addition, the Festival has many community partners that provide support and resources year after year.
Each year hundreds of attendees flock to the Great Salt Lake Bird Festival to experience one-of-a-kind field trips, participate in hands-on learning workshops, and enjoy opportunities to listen to world-renowned keynote speakers and expert field trip guides. But most importantly, for 4 days a group of passionate birders get together and celebrate the beautiful array of birds that migrate to our region, while sharing unforgettable moments and experiences.
At the Great Salt Lake Bird Festival you can expect to see hundreds of different species of birds, rare access to property and areas that are typically closed off to the public and to top it all off, attendees experience the beautiful outdoor playground Utah offers. The GSL Bird Festival’s utmost responsibility is respecting the habitat in which these wonderful creatures live, even if for some, it may only be a resting or pit stop as they head to their next destination.
