Visitor Center

Constructed using environmentally friendly building practices, the Visitor Center combines reclaimed wood from the Lucin Cutoff trestle in the Great Salt Lake, a living sod roof to reduce heat absorption and minimize impact on the microclimate and human/wildlife habitat. Inside you’ll see a multitude of “green” materials like carpet made from recycled plastics and paints, stains and glues that do not emit toxic fumes. The Visitor Center houses our administrative offices, the Nest Gift Shop, and the Discovery Room which is full of seasonal nature exhibits.
