SEE ROCKY MOUNTAIN GOATS APRIL 12

Fun activities for kids also part of the event

SALT LAKE CITY — Colorful flowers and warmer weather aren't the only signs that 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 12.
Free activities for kids also will be offered.
"This event will be a great opportunity to get out and enjoy the sure-footed antics of these goats," says Bob Walters, Watchable Wildlife coordinator for the Division of Wildlife Resources.
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 available so you can get a close look at the goats," Walters says. "You can also pick up a Rocky Mountain goat fact card and a poster." And activities for kids will be held from 9 a.m. to noon.
"Your kids can stamp goat tracks using ink stamps and paper we'll have on hand," Walters says. "We'll also have some mountain goat horns and fur for them to handle."
For more information, call Walters at (801) 538-4771.
