Official Description


Established in 1938, Tracy Aviary is the nation's oldest public aviary. Located on 7.5 wooded acres within a city park, Tracy Aviary houses approximately 400 birds of 135 species and cultivates over 100 varieties of plants. The Aviary's goal is too instill an appreciation for birds and nature through education, research and conservation.
Tracy Aviary features birds from almost every corner of the globe. The “Birds of a Feather” free-flight Bird Show offered throughout the summer months takes visitors on an educational and thrilling journey around the world as they explore the fascinating lives of birds. Also available during the summer months is the popular Lory Walk Exhibit. In this interactive exhibit visitors can hand-feed colorful Australian parrots. These birds are a real delight as they land on people's hands, shoulders and sometimes even heads!
Throughout the year Tracy Aviary offers a variety of classes for all ages. Our school outreach programs take birds into the classrooms to educate and fascinate the children of the Salt Lake community. Our on-grounds classes give students detailed experience with topics such as eggs, feathers, birdwatching and behavior. Another educational experience offered to the community by the Aviary is the Tracy Aviary Distinguished Lecture Series. In this free lecture series, exciting and renowned professionals in the ornithological community speak on research topics in avian biology and conservation.
