Robert N. Hasenyager Great Salt Lake Nature Center

1700 West Glovers Lane
Farmington, UT 84025


The nature center is located along the southeast shore of the Great Salt Lake, adjacent to the Utah Division of Wildlife Resources' Farmington Bay Waterfowl Management Area (WMA). Up to five million birds of over 200 species visit Farmington Bay each year. Sixty of those bird species nest at Farmington Bay WMA, including Great Blue Herons, which nest in a unique man-made breeding colony that offers birding enthusiasts and others months of viewing opportunity.
