Park City Museum will host an in-person lecture called What’s So Funny About Park City’s Wildflowers? given by James Cornett on Wednesday, July 27th from 5-6 p.m. at the Park City Museum Education and Collection Center Building located at 2079 Sidewinder Drive.

After the snow has gone, Park City and the Wasatch Mountains transform into a kaleidoscope of color as wildflowers spread across the hills, meadows and roadsides Join ecologist James Cornett as he examines our wildflowers and legacy from a unique and lighthearted perspective. It’s a program designed for those who sneeze at the mere sight of a blossom, who would rather watch TV than wildflowers, or think those darn plants are just too colorful.

Cornett is the author of 42 books on nature. His current research on Joshua trees was recently covered in a front-page story in the Los Angeles Times. He retired as Director of Natural Sciences at the Palm Springs Desert Museum in 2005. He lives in Palm Springs with his wife Terry and is a summer resident of Park City.
