Mountain goat viewing event, April 11

The free event at the mouth of Little Cottonwood Canyon includes free activities for kids


Salt Lake City — Colorful flowers and warmer weather aren't the only signs spring is here — so are mountain goats at the mouth of Little Cottonwood Canyon.

You can see and learn more about the goats at a free wildlife-viewing event. The event will be held Saturday, April 11.

Free activities for children also will be offered.

"April is one of the best months to see the goats," says Bob Walters, Watchable Wildlife coordinator for the Division of Wildlife Resources. "This event will be a great opportunity to come out and watch their sure-footed antics."

The event will be held at the Park-and-Ride lot at the mouth of Little Cottonwood Canyon in Salt Lake County. DWR biologists will be at the lot from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.

To reach the canyon, travel east out of Salt Lake City on 9400 South.

"We'll have powerful spotting scopes and binoculars that will give you a front-row look at these agile rock climbers," Walters says. "You can also pick up a poster and a card that provides information about mountain goats."

Activities for children will be held from 9 a.m. to noon. "Your kids can stamp goat tracks using ink stamps and paper that we'll have on hand," Walters says. "We'll also have some goat horns and fur for you and your kids to pick up and examine."
