Canyonlands Field Institute offers a one day field trip dedicated to the diversity of wildflowers in southeastern Utah. The program will be led by local Moab biologist and wildflower expert Joel Tuhy. Tuhy, who also works for the Nature Conservancy, has been studying and photographing wildflowers in the region for over 30 years. In addition to learning to identify desert plants, participants will also gain an appreciation for particular habitat requirements, adaptations, and interesting cultural uses. Locations visited during the field trip will be determined depending on where the best blooms are at the time, but expect a number of short hikes up to half a mile round-trip from the vehicle during the day.
The day trip includes lunch, transportation, hikes and interpretive talks. The tour will start and end at Canyonlands Field Institute. Field Trip tickets are $100 per person, available to adults and youths above the age of 16. For more information visit http://cfimoab.org/trips/desert-wildflower-seminar/ .
