Fodor's Review

Established in 1928 to conserve the Bear River habitat for migratory waterfowl and wildlife, this refuge, 13 miles west of Brigham City, is managed by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. You'll get a chance to observe birds and wildlife along a 4-mile driving route, with ducks, geese, pelicans, herons, swans, shore birds, and more arriving in various seasons. The Wildlife Education Center contains interactive displays, an exhibit hall, a theater, observation decks, and teaching labs, with guided tours on Friday and Saturday during the summer.
