DWR Will Sponsor a Bighorn Sheep Watch at Sunnyside on June 18


If you would like to see bighorn sheep, please keep Saturday, June 18 in mind. That’s the day when the Division of Wildlife Resources will host a bighorn sheep watch at Sunnyside from 4 p.m. until dark.

The DWR will have binoculars, spotting scopes, brochures and biologists on-hand to help visitors find the sheep and get the most benefit from viewing them.

Each year, about 24 rams spend their summer at Sunnyside. Some are very large with massive horns. Sunnyside is one of very few places, where this many rams can be seen at very close range.

You don’t need to pre-register. Just come and bring a camera and binoculars, if you have one. Please leave your dogs at home, and coach your children that they need to be quiet and not run around or yell or throw things at the sheep.
