CANCELLED | The March 2019 Avalanche Cycle: One for the History Books

“The March 2019 Avalanche Cycle: One for the History Books”
Brian Lazar, Colorado Avalanche Information Center

In light of heightened concern over COVID-19, we have decided to CANCEL tonight’s Naturalist Nights presentation. A video of last night’s presentation in Carbondale is available on ACES’ Facebook page, and will be posted to ACES’ YouTube page by Friday. We look forward to seeing you next season!

Colorado experienced a historic avalanche cycle in March of 2019. Explore how hydroclimatic events and snowpack conditions spurred this event. Put the avalanche cycle into historic context, and learn about research efforts that the Colorado Avalanche Information Center, US Forest Service and US Geological Survey are engaged in to better understand the impacts on forest health, people and behavior.

Brian Lazar has worked in the field of snow and avalanches for decades. Since 2010, Brian has worked as the Deputy Director of the Colorado Avalanche Information Center, and is one of the lead faculty for Colorado Mountain College’s Avalanche Science Program.

Can’t make it to Hallam Lake on Thursday? You can also catch this presentation on Wednesday at 6PM at the Third Street Center in Carbondale. 

What is Naturalist Nights?

Each winter, together with Wilderness Workshop and Roaring Fork Audubon, ACES invites regional experts to explore and share topics of the natural world through slideshows and discussion.

From January to March, this popular series takes place in Aspen at Hallam Lake every Thursday evening at 6PM, and every Wednesday at 6PM in Carbondale at the Third Street Center, providing an educational activity for visitors and locals alike. Tea, donated by Two Leaves Tea Company, and cookies donated by Paradise Bakery, Village Smithy, or Bonfire Coffee are offered.
