The Summit Land Conservancy is teaming up with Wasatch Brewing this summer to hunt out local hops in the Park City area! Come join the Hops Hunters as we hike along the hillsides protected by the Summit Land Conservancy. We will be seeking wild-growing hop binds, descendants of plants originally brought here by German miners, and discussing local flora and fauna along the way. Hikes will begin at 9:30 and will last about 2 hours.

To sign up for individual hikes visit our sign up page. You can also add yourself to the Hops Hunters mailing list and receive updates by emailing shawna@wesaveland.org. We will also be posting Hops Hunter updates throughout the season, so make sure to check back often!

Participants should wear hiking shoes and sunscreen and bring water and a snack! Dogs are welcome but must be on a leash and friendly!
