The Refuge and other wetlands associated with the Great Salt Lake provide critical habitat for migrating birds from both the Pacific and Central Flyway of North America. This area contains abundant food for birds. Birds come to the Refuge by the millions to eat and rest during migration. Visit the James V. Hansen Wildlife Education to learn about the birds and habitat of the Great Salt Lake ecosystem through our interactive displays and watch the amazing Wings of Thunder film. This film was produced by the Friends of the Bear River Refuge and takes you on a 27 minute journey through our history and seasons of wildlife. A 1.5 mile walking trail meanders through the wetland habitat just outside the center. Center hours are 8:00 am to 5:00 pm weekdays, 10:00 am to 4:00 pm Saturdays, and is closed on Federal holidays.
