Utah offers an array of excellent rivers for fly fishing. This class is a chance to get out and try the sport in a beautiful high mountain setting. Designed for the novice, this basic hands-on course explores the art and mechanics of fly fishing, including equipment, safety, knots, entomology, and, of course, casting. We will learn some basics in the classroom then travel to a local river for the day to test our new skills.

You are responsible for providing your rod and reel (can be rented at local fly shops), fishing license, sack lunch, sunglasses (essential for eye protection), and either waders and boots or clothes and shoes that can get wet. A selection of flies and other tackle will be provided for our river day.

This class is limited to 10. To register or for more information, call 801-587-LIFE (5433) or visit lifelong.utah.edu.

Bird Docent Orientation @ HawkWatch International
Aug 22 @ 5:30 pm – 7:30 pm
Bird Docent Orientation @ HawkWatch International

Bird Docent volunteers assist in providing community outreach programs with HawkWatch International’s education birds. Volunteers learn how to handle our non-releasable education birds, learn about the birds and HawkWatch International’s mission and programs, and then take the birds out to community programs to teach about raptor ecology and conservation. We do have a time commitment for volunteers and ask they assist with some general bird care duties. If you would like to become a Bird Docent volunteer for HawkWatch International, attend the orientation where you will meet the birds and Nikki Wayment, HWI Education and Community Outreach Director.
