Salt Lake City — Now that the weather is "coming around," it's time to get outside and see something wild!

Rocky Mountain goats will be the featured species during a field trip to watch and enjoy their surefooted antics at the mouth of Little Cottonwood Canyon in Salt Lake County on Saturday, April 12.

Participation in the field trip is free and no pre-registration is required. Goat watching will begin at the Park and Ride lot at the mouth of the canyon at 9 a.m. and continue until 3 p.m.

"Powerful scopes and binoculars will be available at the Park and Ride lot at the canyon mouth to enhance the views of this remarkable animal," said Bob Walters, Watchable Wildlife program coordinator for the Division of Wildlife Resources. "Rocky Mountain goat fact cards and posters will be distributed to all those in attendance."

The field trip, which will not require leaving the Park and Ride lot area, is sponsored by the Division of Wildlife Resources' Watchable Wildlife program.

For more information, call Walters at (801) 538-4771.
