We keep moving forward, opening new doors, and doing new things, because we're curious and curiosity keeps leading us down new paths.

The picture above is not new, but old. It is the remains of the rock wall lining the driveway entrance to the Lambert homestead. Come to this page to find out what's new to the Alpine Nature Center.

- We have done some housekeeping! As the site has expanded, we felt it necessary to move some things around and add a little bit more organization. Don't worry, nothing has been lost and hopefully all your favorites are still easy to find. If you are having a hard time finding something, just go the site map.
- Our largest bird photo contributor has been Andrew Judd, a resident of Payson, Utah! Almost all of the bird pictures we have to date were taken by him. We are grateful to him for the generosity he has shown us in sharing his pictures with us. We've asked him to share a little personal information, which is not only interesting, but might be of help to Alpine bird watchers! Find out more about Utah County resident, Andrew Judd, whose hard work has provided the basis for our bird identification pages!

- Make a date with Lambert Park! The Utah Division of Wildlife Resources in partnership with Utah sportsman groups and the Alpine Nature Center has developed a project to help improve the remaining winter range at the foothills around Alpine for mule deer. The project will reduce the need for mule deer to look for food in peoples' yards and have them be able to instead find the food they need in open spaces like Lambert Park. Find out more info and how to volunteer on the Winter Range Planting page in the Stewardship section.
- Looking for a taste of the Mediterranean in your own backyard? Look no further than the Mountain Mahogany tree, which can be found in Lambert Park. Find out more about this old forest companion that we have in our midst on the Mountain Mahogany page of the Who Knew? section.

- We have gathered enough bird pictures from Utah County birders that we have separated them into two pages to make it easier to scroll through the list. Raptors, or birds of prey, are on their own page, and all other birds share a different page. Check out the links to the new photos and the new structure on the new Birds in the Wild page.

- We continue to feather our nest! We now have 45 different local area birds identified! Check them out on the Bird Identification page in our Birds area of the Wildlife section.
