See “The Wild World of Predators” in Wildlife Building at Utah State Fair
There will be plenty to do in and around the Wildlife Building at this year’s Utah State Fair.
Kids can catch fish at a fishing pond. Inside the building, you can see fish from across Utah in the building’s aquariums and learn more about Utah’s predators by touring “The Wild World of Predators” display. And a group from Earthwings will provide a bird show in front of the building every evening at 7 p.m.
In addition to live fish, tarantulas and reptiles, a full-size eagle’s nest, a replica of a bat cave and many other exhibits and taxidermy animals are waiting for you inside the building.
“The building is full of cool stuff about Utah’s wildlife,” says Patricia Engel, events coordinator for the Division of Wildlife Resources.
When it’s open
The 2012 Utah State Fair runs from Sept. 6 – 16. The Wildlife Building will be open every day of the fair.
The fishing pond on the south side of the building will also be open from 4 to 7 p.m. every day of the fair. Anyone 13 years of age and younger can fish at the pond. Anglers who are 12 or 13 years old must have a fishing license, though.
The DWR puts the exhibit in the Wildlife Building together every. DWR personnel staff the building and the fishing pond.
