Naturalist Nights

Naturalist Nights is going virtual in 2021! 

Each winter, ACES partners with Wilderness Workshop and Roaring Fork Audubon to co-host the popular Naturalist Nights speaker series. While we won’t be able to provide the traditional tea and cookies for this winter’s virtual series, we’re still bringing a great line-up of experts to explore topics of the natural world with our community. This year’s modified Naturalist Nights series will include five presentations, plus a Spanish translation for each.
