Tracy Aviary inspires curiosity and caring for birds and nature through education and conservation.

For Tracy Aviary’s first 37 years, Calvin D. Wilson was the curator and visionary. During his tenure several world-first breeding occurred here, along with recognition for the part Tracy Aviary played in recovery efforts of the Trumpeter Swan. Wilson retired in 1975 and for the next several years (1976-1982) Tracy Aviary was troubled by poor management, meager funding, and widespread deterioration of both the buildings and the bird collection. For the 12 years prior to Aviary management by Friends of Tracy Aviary, the Aviary was managed by Salt Lake City Corporation. A highlight of this administration was the tenure of curator, D. Grenville Roles, who focused on building Tracy Aviary to become a premier institution. Salt Lake City increased its operational and financial interest and provided more than $500,000 to improve the buildings and other structures.
Tracy Aviary committed itself to providing more educational programs and opportunities for the benefit of the citizens of Salt Lake City and surrounding areas. As a result, educational outreach programs for children in public schools became a central focus for Tracy Aviary education staff. In 1990, Tracy Aviary was accredited by the American Zoo and Aquarium Association (AZA). With accreditation, the public is assured that Tracy Aviary meets required high standards in the areas of animal care, visitor experience, and educational purpose. In 1993, a support organization, the Friends of Tracy Aviary, reorganized Tracy Aviary as a private, nonprofit corporation and prepared for the responsibilities of its management. In 1994, Tracy Aviary became a fully independent institution. Annual operating support is received from Salt Lake City Corporation; the Zoo, Arts, and Parks Fund of Salt Lake County; and through the generosity of many individuals, corporations and foundations. Tracy Aviary is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization.
