"Simply the best location for birding in North America"
"One would normally have to travel to several different locations to find the diversity of habitats this unique property boasts." -Sylvia Gray, Great Salt Lake Audubon Society.
BIRD WATCHING continues to be an entertaining activity here at the Johnson Mill. The Spring Migration which starts about the first week in March promises to bring some interesting birds as they journey north. The Fall Migration which starts about the first week in September promises to bring some interesting birds as they journey south. With the varied terrain the Mill offers such as ponds and streams, adjacent wet lands, meadows and vegetation attractive to many birds, over 70 varieties of birds have been spotted on the Mill property itself, making it one of the area's unique birding sites.
The Audubon Society comes to the Mill on the third Wednesday of each month. Bring your own binoculars and plan your trip (or trips!) for your next adventure.
