Delta Snow Goose Festival

thumb Geese on beachEarly each spring, thousands of Snow Geese begin their 3,000 mile voyage home to Canada's northwest territories. Starting from where they winter in Southern California & Mexico, these travelers navigate their way home with amazing precision and faithfulness.

In addition, they do it all without a trained flight crew, thousands of pounds of jet fuel, or a GPS! Instead, they are equipped with only a few pounds of fatty fuel, a mental map inherited from their parents, a built in compass sensitive to earth's magnetic field, and instinct! Amazing!

Delta, Utah is privileged with the honor of being along their annual migration route. Starting in early February, Snow Geese stop by to rest, pick up snacks, and ready themselves for the rest of their long journey home.

There is no other place in the State of Utah that offers the chance to see so many snow geese in one place. The sights and sounds of thousands of snow geese in the air and upon the water in such a concentrated gathering is one of the most incredible wildlife experiences available.

Come join us for this year's annual Delta Snow Goose Festival! Bring your camera and be ready to join the fun.
