Snow Geese in Delta Utah

Snow Geese in Delta

Each February, Lesser Snow Geese make their way into Utah and use the fields and waters in the Delta area as a rest stop on their northern migration.

Delta, Utah

The town of Delta (known originally as Melville), got its start when the Melville Irrigation Company obtained rights to divert water from the Sevier River Reservoir. Due to the rich rock, mineral, and fossil specimens in the surrounding desert, Delta makes a great homebase for rockhounds, gemologists, and crystal gazers. Delta is home to the Great Basin Historical Society Museum, as well as the Sunset View Golf Course. Other nearby attractions are Fort Deseret and Little Sahara Sand Dunes, an ATV-rider's destination par excellence. Delta is also an excellent place for students of World War II history. Topaz Camp remains a monument to Japanese-Americans interned there during the war.

Cultural and Heritage Attractions
The Great Basin Museum in Delta has displays of rocks and fossils found in the west desert, plus western historical and cultural artifacts and a video on Topaz, a World War II Japanese Internment Camp. Take a tour of the IPP, the largest power plant in the United States. Stop at Fort Deseret, built in 1865 by Mormon settlers. Also of note in Delta is Van's Hall. Originally constructed in the late 1920s by William Van DeVanter, this domed hall was a great center of entertainment for all of Central Utah.
