Desert Lake waterfowl viewing


Print PageEmail PageShareGet Reprints

The Division of Wildlife Resources (DWR) will sponsor a bird viewing event on April 30, at Desert Lake in Emery County from 8 a.m. until noon. The event commemorates national celebrations of Migratory Bird Day and Wetlands Day. The event is free to the public. DWR biologists will be on-hand with spotting scopes and binoculars to assist the public with waterfowl identification.

Desert Lake is located east of the town of Elmo. From either Carbon or Emery County, take SR-10 to the Elmo turn-off (SR- 155). Travel to Elmo. On Main Street, travel east out of town until you see a sign for the Cleveland-Lloyd Dinosaur Quarry. Follow the sign. In less than a mile, you will arrive at Desert Lake. Signs will direct you to the viewing locations.

Desert Lake serves as a rest area for many species of birds during migration. These include ducks, geese, sandpipers, herons, gulls, terns, pelicans, and cranes. Desert Lake is managed by the DWR for the benefit of migratory waterfowl. Normally closed to public access, the lake also serves as a sanctuary for nesting birds. The DWR encourages Castle Country residents to come out and enjoy this unique opportunity. For more information, contact Brent Stettler at 435-636-0266 or brentstettler@utah.gov
