Willard L. Eccles Observation Tower at Avocet Pond

Get a treetop vantage point for viewing wildlife and the Wasatch Mountains. Through the spotting scope you might see nesting Avocets, Canada Geese, or even a fox hunting for mice and pheasants. In the field to the north of the tower, Jack Rensel and Paul Christiansen from the Division of Wildlife Resources built a Burrowing Owl den, in hopes that someday these ground dwelling owls might decide to move in. The plowed field to the northwest of the tower is a food plot for wildlife. Keep an eye out for visiting Canada Geese or even Sandhill Cranes. The Observation Tower is .35 mi. from the Visitor Center, via Teal Pond.
