Nature is life and is present in every city and town in Utah. Come see the abundance of wild plants and animals with which we share the places where we live in the new Nature All Around Us exhibition to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the Natural History Museum of Utah .

Dive into different habitats, watch live animals and enjoy interactive games that will awaken your senses as you discover the hidden worlds of nature that surrounds you, from your patio to the central streets. The Nature All Around Us exhibition invites you to explore the ways our lives intertwine with nature — how trees cool our neighborhoods, how streams prevent flooding, and how spending time in nature keeps us healthy. Meet the citizen scientists who record nature in our communities and find out how you can get involved.

  • Pretend to buzz over a field of flowers and learn about pollinators
  • Delve into tunnels that show the hidden life of urban forests
  • Identify and find your ideal tree with the mobile application " Timber"
  • Discover edible wild plants, choose and order your dish from the digital chef
  • Learn about the surprising diversity of creatures with whom we share the places where we live, work and play
