The Utah Pest Management Association works to deliver an educational experience unlike any other in the Utah area.  Why? Because you deserve it!  That's why we are proud to announce our 2021 Fall Conference will be held at the Garden Room, Thanksgiving Point, teaming with real-world opportunities to learn, explore and have fun!  Located at the heart of Thanksgiving Point's Butterfly Biosphere is "The Conservatory," a nearly 10,000 square foot USDA glass containment facility, housing insects from all over the world.  We invite you to visit their website and see all the wonderful experiences that Thanksgiving Point has to offer.
