about Utah Botanical Center:
The Utah House is a model sustainable learning center at the UBC. The house and the grounds around the structure demonstrate how a home can be built and landscaped in ways that promote energy efficiency, water conservation, renewable resources, and healthy indoor environments. It is open Mon-Fri 1pm-5pm & Sat 10am-2pm. The house can be rented for private functions; call for details.
Plants aren't the only things to see at the botanical center. Birds are often found in abundance, especially on the ponds. Families can rent Birdwatching Backpacks for $6 at the Utah House; the packs have binoculars, field guides, bird lists, etc. to help folks see and identify the birds on the grounds.
Fishing is allowed at the center's four ponds; anglers must have a valid fishing license if over the age of 13. The daily limit is four fish of any kind (largemouth bass, bluegill, channel catfish). There is no size limit on any of the three species. Non-motorized watercraft is allowed on the ponds.
Tours of the greenhouse are available by appointment. Call to schedule a time.
