American West Heritage Center is one of the most beautiful historic preserves in Utah, and it’s open to all of us. A do-not-miss for any age is the wildly-popular Baby Animal Days at the American West Heritage Center, starting April 4 and going through April 7.

You can see all types of animal babies, like ducklings, chicks, piglets, pygmy goats, foals and calves. New this year is a burro with her foal, brought in just for the event. While the farm animals are always a hit, visitors also love bear cubs from Yellowstone Bear World. Mic Bowen, executive director for the American West Heritage Center, said a few years ago they brought bison to this historical preserve, and the Bison Tours, where you can see bison up close, are also a guest favorite. Guests are invited back to see the bison calves, born in early June.

While Baby Animal Days is their most popular event, Mic says they offer great events throughout the year, like Handcart Treks in the canyon, a Pioneer Day Celebration and the fall harvest festival, with events for the whole family.

Just in case you can’t make the main festival, every Saturday throughout April, you can visit the American West Heritage Center for a chance to see baby farm animals.
