Ninth Annual Wildflower Festival
Blooms at Cedar Breaks

In celebration of its colorful wildflower displays, Cedar Breaks National Monument will host its ninth annual Wildflower Festival from July 5-20. "During this spectacular display, visitors to the Monument will be able to see paintbrush and primrose, lupine and larkspur, and a spectrum of other flowers in meadows, woods, and marshes," said Park Superintendent Paul Roeland!.

Volunteers will be available to lead guided walks each festival day at 10 am and 1pm. The walks, approximately one hour in length, will focus on the latest bloomers and how they live and survive in the subalpine habitat.

On festival weekends from 10 am-3 pm, a variety of family-friendly activities will be offered in the Visitor Center area. Activities include "Wildflower Bingo," "Daisy Defenders," and much more.

On Saturday, July 5, Dr. Ken Kingsley will present "Wildflowers and their Pollinators," at 11 am in the Ranger Station. A wildflower photography workshop will be conducted on Saturday, July 12.
A field session will be included. Participants should bring cameras and meet at the Ranger Station at 11 am. Sonya Smith, Media Specialist for Cedar Breaks National Monument, will conduct the workshop.

Also available to assist visitors with identifying wildflowers is the "Wildflowers of Cedar Breaks" digital application (app). The app features over 100 common wildflowers with general description information, historic and traditional uses, and fun facts about the flowers. The app is available as a free download from iTunes and Android Market.

During this year's festival, visitors are encouraged to create and submit artwork for next year's Wildflower Festival poster. Acceptable forms of artwork include: photograph, watercolor, acry1·1c, oil, 3D sculpture, or installation art. Artwork should represent wildflowers found in and around the Cedar Breaks National Monument. Entries must be photographed and submitted by email to sonya_smith@nps.gov. Submission deadline is August 31. A cash prize of $100 will be awarded to the winning entry. More information and an application can be found at www.nps.gov/cebr/wildflower-festival. htm.

The park will host Zion Canyon Field Institute (ZCFI) classes to round out the schedule. The classes include: "Cedar Mountain Wildflowers" on July 11, "Cedar Breaks Wildflower Photography" on July 12, and "Wildflower Journaling at Cedar Breaks" on July 15. Please contact ZCFI at 435- 772-3264 for more information and to pre-register.

USF Festival Family Days

The Utah Shakespeare Festival has once again announced Festival Family Days. This program is geared at families and offers a significant discount so the entire family can attend at a “family friendly” price.

Comedy in the Wild West

This year’s family friendly matinee is The Comedy of Errors. For a limited time tickets are $15 for select performances: July 9, 12, 15, 18, 23, 26 and 30 and August 2, 8, 14, 19, 22 and 30. Discounted tickets must be purchased by July 15. Use the coupon code FAMILY when purchasing tickets online at www.bard.org.

“Families should have affordable access to our work and the work of William Shakespeare,” said David Ivers, artistic director. “As such we are happy to continue our family friendly pricing and hope the young and old continue to cultivate a love for Shakespeare and the Festival.” Parents have an affordable opportunity to share the Bard’s work with their children and create an early appreciation for his language and the power of theatre.

The Comedy of Errors is about, not one, but two sets of bewildered twins who are in the same small town but who don’t know about each other. Every dusty road they turn down looks just like the last one, and every prospector and saloon girl seems to know more about them than they know about themselves. The more they try to unravel the lunatic events swirling around them, the more farcical their lives become. It’s double the laughter with two sets of twins and twice the fun when Shakespeare’s hysterical comedy is re-imagined in the California gold rush of 1849.

Tickets are on sale for the Festival’s 53rd season, which will run from June 23 to October 18, 2014. The eight-play season includes Shakespeare’s Measure for Measure, The Comedy of Errors, Henry IV Part One, and Twelfth Night. The season will also include the world premiere adaptation of Jane Austen’s Sense and Sensibility written by Joseph Hanreddy and J. R. Sullivan, Stephen Sondheim’s Into the Woods, Steven Dietz’s adaptation of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s Sherlock Holmes: The Final Adventure, and Boeing Boeing by Marc Camoletti. For more information and tickets visit www.bard.org or call 1-800-PLAYTIX.
