Could you donate a few hours each month to help children and wildlife in a beautiful outdoor setting on the shores of the Great Salt Lake? If so, the Great Salt Lake Nature Center at Farmington Bay needs your help. No experience is necessary, and training will be provided on site.
The Great Salt Lake Nature Center at Farmington Bay offers hands-on wetlands education field trips to school groups of all ages, and currently serves about 3,000 children annually. Requests for field trips greatly exceed the current staff and volunteer naturalist capacity, so the Nature Center is recruiting new Naturalists in order to better serve the needs of local school districts.
The Great Salt Lake Nature Center is a community partnership involving the Utah Division of Wildlife Resources, the Davis School District Foundation, and a non-profit organization, the Utah Wildlife In Need Foundation (UWIN).
For more information about the program, or to sign up as a volunteer, please contact the Director of the Great Salt Lake Nature Center, Diana Vos at (801_589-2373.
The Raptor Inventory Nest Survey (RINS) is an all-volunteer organization concerned with birds of prey that nest in Northern and Central Utah. This organization focuses on habitat protection with particular emphasis on raptor species listed as sensitive or endangered. RINS collects and manages vital data regarding the nesting ecology of eagles, falcons, hawks, osprey and owls. RINS offers a unique opportunity for volunteers to become involved as "citizen scientists" in a long-term raptor nest monitoring project. If you are interested to learn more about RINS, go to www.rins.org. If you are interested involunteering, contact Robyn MacDuff at firstname.lastname@example.org
