SANDY, Utah (AP) - State wildlife officials are hosting a mountain goat viewing party for residents to see the animals at Little Cottonwood Canyon near Sandy.

The Deseret News reports (https://bit.ly/1V5LzbR ) the Division of Wildlife Resources is hosting the free event on April 16 at the park-and-ride lot at the mouth of the canyon.

Bob Walters, an official with the division, says there will be binoculars and telescopes on hand to allow visitors to get a close-up view of the goats.

Residents in the Sandy area can view the animals from the parking lot, where there are fixed-point telescopes, at any time.

Walters says the mountain goats are usually visible at the mouth of the canyon from November through mid-April. The goats then move to higher elevations where they stay during the summer.
