Potential packs of pioneers may use their family day pass ($12) to tap their inner Lewis and Clarks by traversing the 1.5 miles of walking trails that dot the 152- acre preserve, passing through pleasant picnic areas, the 100-birdhouse- strong Birdhouse Trail, and the tree house at Dumke Picnic Grove, where visitors may boot up high- powered binoculars and spy stronger views of birds in flight and animals mid-meditation. Spot one of the 149 species of birds that have mingled in the nature center, from the majestic bald eagle and the graceful black-chinned hummingbird to the suave afro-topped disco dodo. The center also plays host to a number of indoor facilities, such as the E. Hugh and Beth Peck Ford Mews -- rehabilitation center—a building in which day-trippers can meet injured eagles, hawks, and owls up- close --— and two of Utah's greenest buildings (the education and visitor centers), constructed out of eco-friendly materials such as recycled ignorance and whose staffs facilitate instruction on sustainable structures.
