George S. and Dolores Doré Eccles Wildlife Education Center1700 W. Glover Lane
The wildlife education center is part of the Robert N. Hasenyager Great Salt Lake Nature Reserve at Farmington Bay. The 300-acre reserve includes the wildlife education center and a wetlands discovery area complete with walking trails and interpretative signs. The George S. and Dolores Dor Eccles Wildlife Education Center consists of three buildings and a courtyard area. The buildings comprising the wildlife education center are:
Exhibit hall - Visitors will learn about Great Salt Lake, the Farmington Bay Waterfowl Management Area and the myriad birds and other wildlife that utilize the area through interpretive exhibits that fill the building.
Community room / auditorium - This building consists of a large, open space that can accommodate up to 200 people. The room has a divider that allows it to be split into two rooms. It will include audio visual equipment, speaker podiums and a kitchen set up for caterers and others. In addition to holding school programs here, the room will be available for groups, communities and private individuals to rent for various events.
L.S. Skaggs Wetland Discovery Classroom - DWR staff and its partners will offer school programs for up to 30 students in this building. The building will also offer a 'wetlab' that will allow students to more closely inspect the neighboring wetland.
When the DWR isn't using the building, it will be open to the public year round for a variety of educational experiences. The building will include two glass walls that open, immersing students in a wetland experience.
