We've combined the best of Watchable Wildlife with fun education tie-ins, hands-on learning and outdoor experiences – with breakout sessions, one-on-one with the pros.. In the heart of the great outdoors, you'll hear wonderful keynote speakers covering everything from wildlife management to wildlife photography and the early history of Native Americans. Breakout sessions give you a full complement of discovering the art of fly tying and casting, geology, biology and more. The field trips, Heber Creeper train ride (includes Alpine Loop and Cascade Springs), horseback rides and bird watching give you every advantage of seeing and understanding nature up-close and personal.

Top this all off with great entertainment by The Hired Guns, a bird-release back into the wild, and a delectable Dutch Oven meal!  We also have some terrific partners so you'll have options of overnight stays in luxurious resort surroundings (discount rates) or camping out in beautiful Wasatch Mountain State Park.
