Have you ever wondered when particular wildflowers start blooming along the Wasatch Front?

Have you ever considered what flowers may be stirring–right under your feet–as you hike or walk the dog?

Here’s your chance to find out, for free: Join an Foothill Nature Walk this spring or summer!

We’re offering a series of 1-hour guided hikes starting at the Museum and moving up the Bonneville Shoreline Trail, to explore the flora and fauna of the season with a variety of experts!

Come and enjoy a spectacular view of Salt Lake City and learn how to identify common flowers and plants, like the pink Longleaf Phlox (Phlox longifolia) and the yellow Longstalk Springsparsley (Cymopterus longipes). Who knows? You may even spy a Bald Eagle (Haliaeetus leucocephalus) soaring!

Foothill Nature Walks will take place on the Bonneville Shoreline Trail behind the Museum. This is a beginner to intermediate level hike on rocky trail with simple inclines and some uneven footing. Participants are strongly encouraged to bring sunscreen, a hat, closed toe footwear, and water. These walks are not appropriate for strollers.
