Summary

Description

Today #mypubliclandsroadtrip heads to a birdwatcher’s paradise - the Pariette Wetlands!

The largest wetland managed by BLM Utah, Pariette Wetlands is the oasis of the Uinta Basin. It is surrounded by vast miles of harsh, arid desert, yet Pariette Wetlands provide a green, marshy home for wildlife trying to survive in the desert.

The 25 man-made ponds at Pariette were created in 1972 to improve waterfowl production and provide seasonal habitat for other riparian species. Common Pariette birds include whooping cranes, peregrine falcons, bald eagles, waterfowl, egrets, and mallards. This area provides an observation point where birds and other wildlife can be viewed, so bring along binoculars and wildlife viewing guides.
