NHMU and the University of Utah are taking proactive steps to keep our community safe during the spread of coronavirus. For that reason, all upcoming NHMU events and programming have been cancelled. Learn more. If this event is rescheduled to return at a later date, this page will be updated when those details become available.
Join NHMU's entomologist Christy Bills and a guest host from Red Butte Garden for a free 1-hour tour of the nature that thrives in the foothills above Salt Lake City.
Come and enjoy a spectacular view of Salt Lake City and learn how to identify common plants and the insects and spiders that call them home. The walk will be serendipitous as we search trails near the Museum and Red Butte Gardens.
Participants are strongly encouraged to wear long trousers and hiking/running shoes, and bring sunscreen, a hat, and water. Walking sticks are recommended if needed, as the walk on the Bonneville Shoreline Trail is unpaved.
This event is free but space is limited to 20 people and registration is in advance is recommended. Day-of registrants are welcome if spaces still remain. *
* Scheduled tour dates subject to change due to weather conditions.
