a free speaker series presented by Aspen Center for Environmental Studies (ACES), Wilderness Workshop, and Roaring Fork Audubon, brings experts to our community to explore environmental issues through slide shows and conversation. The series, which includes nineteen presentations through March 13, runs at 7PM every Thursday at Hallam Lake in Aspen, and at 5:30PM every Wednesday at the Third Street Center in Carbondale. Naturalist Nights has been a staple of ACES’ community programming since 1998. Wilderness Workshop partnered with ACES in 2007 to co-host the popular series, adding the Wednesday night presentations in Carbondale to the lineup. In 2012 Roaring Fork Audubon joined the partnership. Presentations this year include the return of Moose to the Roaring Fork Valley, a look at fire in the Hunter Creek Valley, Laser mapping of our snowpack and a film screening of “A Fierce Green Fire: The Battle for a Living Planet.” “The line-up this year is top-notch,” said Will Roush, Conservation Advocate at the Wilderness Workshop, “it includes numerous experts at the top of their fields discussing local and national issues on climate science, forest health, species conservation and wilderness ethics.” Naturalist Nights kicks off Wednesday in Carbondale and Thursday in Aspen with “Wildlife at the End of the Earth: Antarctic Birds and Animals” by Dick Filby
