Thanksgiving Point is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit that includes the Museum of Ancient Life, Farm Country, and the Thanksgiving Point Gardens that was founded in 1996. It also includes a golf course. The gardens are approximately 55 acres and include 15 different theme gardens with approximately 4.5 miles of walking trails. The golf course is the largest golf club in Utah at 7,728 yards long and more than 200 acres. The property grounds, farm, gardens, and golf club can all be birded. There are entrance fees for the farm and gardens.
The best birding occurs generally along Garden Road between the golf course club house and the entrance to the gardens during spring and fall migration. This road can be walked, as well as a parking area at the entrance to the gardens. The entire area is lined with trees and shrubbery and is good for typical migrants such as tanagers, warblers, flycatchers, and sparrows. The gardens also provide amazing habitat, with miles of trails to check out. The golf course has two ponds that can be scanned from roads on the southern section of the course, that attract a variety of waterfowl during migration. Some of the more notable sightings from the ponds include RED-NECKED GREBE, GREATER SCAUP, CACKLING and SNOW GOOSE.
