Following the criteria listed below, bring professional materials (no handwritten signs please) promoting your event to the KCPW studios at 210 East 400 South, Suite 10.

Since the shorelines of Lake Bonneville receded, Great Salt Lake has featured prominently in the natural and cultural history of North America and beyond. Millions of birds rely on the productive environment for breeding, nesting, and refueling during migration, feasting on the ample food supplies in and around the lake. Humans possess a close connection to the lake as well, from early Paleoindians hunting mammoths on its marshy shores, to Fremont villages and agricultural fields nestled at its shores. More recently, the lake has been seen as a place of recreation and exploitation. The salty brine featured as a major recreational draw, supporting several different bathing resorts from Black Rock, to Lakeside, to Saltair (I, II, and III). Capitalists also saw the lake as a much more lucrative endeavor for exploitation through salt evaporation, brine shrimp harvesting and even market hunting. We all, birds included, have a stake in the future of Great Salt Lake.
History nerd Chris Merritt (Utah State Historic Preservation Office) and Great Salt Lake nerd Jaimi Butler (biologist and Coordinator of Great Salt Lake Institute) will talk about modern research collaboration attempts to bridge the entire gap of Great Salt Lake’s multi-thousand year human-environment interactions, and spur a new century of engagement for a new generation of lake lovers. In other words, we will talk about “Old Crap, Bird Crap and Learned Crap”.
Denise Peterson of the Mountain Lion Foundation speaks on the importance of wildlife corridors and highway crossing structures.
We are living in a highly urbanized world and, while development may not act as a significant barrier for humans, wildlife is challenged with learning how to adapt and survive in an ever-changing landscape. As suitable habitat diminishes and the landscape becomes more and more fragmented, it is crucial that we to connect these habitat islands if wildlife is to thrive. Geographic Information Systems (GIS) can be used to identify suitable habitat patches and potential corridors for wildlife movement so that effective wildlife crossing structures can be built to ensure safe passage across roadways for both people and animals. Presented by Wasatch Packtivists and Western WIldlife Conservancy. Free and open to the public.
Join us for the 10th Annual Ready to Hatch Gala, a magical evening of cocktails, gourmet dining, and avian friends!
Ready to Hatch is the season’s best party with a purpose. Join us on June 8, 2018 to relax in our lush gardens, among the sights and scents of spring while exploring the world of avian conservation.
Ready to Hatch provides over 400 guests with insights into important conservation programs that impact our local eco-systems. This event is a major source of funding for Tracy Aviary Conservation Programs, where we use research, outreach, and conservation action to protect birds and their habitats throughout Utah. By attending Ready to Hatch, you are helping us introduce more people to the wonders of the natural world, and helping to support the conservation of local avian habitats.
This night also showcases the beautiful grounds of Tracy Aviary in full bloom, complemented by live music, a silent auction, hand crafted local hors d’oeuvres and libations. Guests are greeted by avian ambassadors with unique nose-to-beak experiences as their memorable evening takes flight.

This week we’re absorbing bird culture through origami, dance, fine art, and story-telling, all inspired by up-close encounters with some of our feathered stars of Tracy Aviary.
