This spring visit Red Butte Garden to see the growing display of over 460,000 blooming bulbs! In the fall of 2017, staff and volunteers planted 32,600 more bulbs, including many in the Adaptive Beauty terrace of the new Water Conservation Garden.
The bulbs usually begin to bloom in March with ground-covering mini-Iris in various shades of blues, purples, and yellows. Then in April, fresh, show-stopping daffodils herald the arrival of spring. Visit the Garden April 14 through April 28 for the best blooms. The Garden has over 239,018 daffodils and 228,413 other bulbs such as Allium, Anemone, Cyclamen, Galanthus, Hyacinth, and more. Flowering bulbs are not the only showy spring display— trees and shrubs also begin to blossom throughout the Garden—Serviceberry, Crabapple, Magnolia, Flowering Cherry, Pears, and Lilacs.
Since 2013, Red Butte Garden has been recognized as an official Daffodil Display Garden by the American Daffodil Society. Our display represents all 13 recognized daffodil divisions, which are based on floral parts and species derivation.CATEGORY: Community Events

9-year old Agnes Varda, one of the leading figures of the French New Wave, and acclaimed 33 year-old French photographer and muralist JR teamed up to co-direct this enchanting documentary/road movie. Kindred spirits, Varda and JR share a lifelong passion for images and how they are created, displayed and shared. Together they travel around the villages of France in JR’s photo truck meeting locals, learning their stories, and producing epic-size portraits of them. The photos are prominently displayed on houses, barns, storefronts and trains revealing the humanity in their subjects, and themselves. Faces Places documents these heart-warming encounters as well as the unlikely, tender friendship they formed along the way.

Insects as food is a hot topic. Particularly over the last few years, since the UN recommended edible insects as a resource to combat world hunger, they have been heralded for their taste by cooks and gastronomes, for their low ecological impact by environmentalists, and for their nutritional content by public health scientists. It would seem that insects are the new superfood that will fix all our problems of global food security. This event is brought to you by Park City Film Series in partnership with Swaner Preserve and EcoCenter. Park City Library - Santy Auditorium 1255 Park Avenue Park City, UT 84060CATEGORY: Film
