Tracy Aviary in Salt Lake City

It has been only a couple years since I visited Tracy Aviary but I was so surprised by how much it has changed!

First let me tell you about the aviary. Tracy Aviary is a world of birds; I tell my kids that it is the “bird zoo.” The aviary has more than 135 species and 400 individual birds on display and covers 8 acres. They also have daily bird shows and bird feedings and fun classes. I always tell other moms that I enjoy it much more than the actual zoo because it is very shaded there. The kids can roam around more and it feels so much cleaner!

Like I said, it has changed so much since I was last there. The building where the welcome desk, ticket desk, gift shop, inside kids station are has been spruced up quite a bit. The grounds, which were always clean and well taken care of, have been stepped up quite a few notches. Also the inside exhibits flow so well and are extremely clean and welcoming. The interactive informational signs on the birds are written well and are clean, durable and kid friendly.

Things are divided up in different ways, one of them being by “region” so they have a South American Pavilion inside area and an outdoor Argentinian room designed to make you feel like you are standing outside a home. Then they have an Owl Forest, Marshes Land section and many more places.

We also wanted to quickly mention their kids classes, specifically their Preschool and Kintergarden classes starting this fall. The classes are offered every other week over a three-month period. Each class will run as a weekday session and a Saturday session. Classes feature a special bird visitor, a fun craft or activity, a snackand an engaging story connecting with the age-appropriate themes. All are designed for parents to attend and participate with their children. Classes can be taken in the full series of six or registered for individually. You can get more information on them here.

Check back on Wednesday to hear what the other ladies thought of Tracy Aviary.

Everyone brought their kiddos, and while I have 3 really mellow girls, some of the other Sassies have older kids and boys. They just might have a completely different take on the place than I do. Stay tuned!

    The first thing you ned to think about before buying your headphones is
    tthe coomfort level, there’s nothing worse than watching your favodite movie but youu still can’t sleep because your headphones dig into the side of your ead when resting your head on the pillow,
    this means that you probably want to opt for in ear headphones but
    honestly this is a big mistake as I’ve found
    that they jut fall out when you are laid flat so good
    with a good pair of over ear headphones. Most of thhe time,
    somebody has already created a product that provides
    a solution to the problem that people arre having.
    There are a few upsells, as with any product, but they are
    not necessary to effectively use the product.

    I leave a response whenever I especially enjoy a post on
    a site or I have something to contribute to the discussion.
    Usually it is triggered by the sincerness displayed in
    the post I looked at. And after this article Tracy
    Aviary in Salt Lake City – SassyScoops.com. I was actually moved enough to drop a comment :) I do have a couple of questions for you if you usually do not
    mind. Could it be simply me or do a few of the remarks come across as if they are left by brain dead visitors?

    :-P And, if you are posting on other online sites,
    I’d like to follow you. Would you make a list every one of your community
    sites like your linkedin profile, Facebook page or twitter feed?

    You really make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this topic to be really something that I think I would never understand.
    It seems too complex and very broad for me. I’m looking forward for your next post, I’ll try to get
    the hang of it!

    I’m impressed, I ought to say. Definitely rarely do I encounter a blog that is both educative and entertaining, and let me tell you, you might have hit the nail on the head. Your thought is outstanding; the issue is something that not sufficient folks are speaking intelligently about. I’m quite happy that I stumbled across this in my search for some thing relating to this.
