On April 11, spend your Saturday at the Nevada State Museum in Carson City studying and learning about the local wildflowers. Take part in many different activities designed to help you better identify some of the wildlife we see everyday around town and on the hiking trails: dissect specimens, sketch plants, press flowers, collect maps and guides for local trails, and meet others who are passionate about wildlife. Botanists will be on hand to help answer your questions and guide you through the many explorations. Kids and adults of all ages are welcome to take part in the 30-minute stations.

The event takes place from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Admission price is $8 for anyone over the age of 17, and anyone younger than 17 is admitted free of charge. A ticket will grant you access to the entirety of the Museum’s facilities, not just the Wildflower exhibit.
