    Surrounded by vast miles of harsh, arid desert, the Pariette Wetlands' 9,033 acres provide a green, marshy home for wildlife trying to survive in the desert lands of the Uinta Basin.

    Recently, a lucky group of Cub Scouts had the chance to visit this BLM managed oasis in Northeastern Utah. The group, led by Natural Resource Specialists from the Vernal Field Office, took a guided walking tour of the beautiful manmade wetlands. Wolf and Webelos Scouts of Troop 238 observed ducks and herons, saw a prehistoric cist, and learned the difference between antlers and horns. The group was also provided the unique opportunity to take a close look at a harris hawk and pet a baby goshawk.
