Wasatch Wildflower Festival

Cottonwood Canyons Foundation is excited to invite you to join us for the annual Wasatch Wildflower Festival. Every July thousands have attended this four-day event held at the ski resorts in Big and Little Cottonwood Canyons. This year we are kicking it up several notches and offering 31 days of family-friendly festivities. And yet, we will likely not see one of you. This year’s individualized “virtual” Wasatch Wildflower Festival allows for social distancing and dispersed recreation, which are necessary for the circumstances we are experiencing with COVID-19.

Your participation in the Wasatch Wildflower Festival 2020 will help the Cottonwood Canyon Foundation continue to fund our environmental education programs.

Each year we raise much of our funding for education programs during the spring and summer months. Please come have fun with us (ever so virtually), and help us replace some of the revenue needed for our K-12 field trips and public education programs.

There are two options to upgrade from the free event, making the experience: a full month of exciting video content, “Ask a Naturalist” weekly virtual presentations, kids craft projects and four weekly virtual classes with resort chefs and the locally famous Wildflowers of the Cottonwood Canyons guidebook
