What is ACES Ed? Every ACES Ed class is a hybrid. An average lesson is likely to be driven by a combination of Colorado science standards, local issues and ecology, tradition (at Aspen Elementary, we've taught tracking to 3rd graders for almost 35 years), and the individual inspiration of the educator. This month we have a new fuel source for the 4th grade curriculum: the forest health initiative being carried out by another branch of ACES, For the Forest.

As a 23-year-old who has recently moved back to my hometown, I reflect upon the impact environmental education has had on my development. Having the opportunity to be born and raised in the Roaring Fork Valley is an experience I can never take for granted. In particular, I am grateful for the experiences I had growing up with ACES Ed.

Throughout the fall, winter and spring ACES offers monthly Morning Birding classes at our Hallam Lake site in Aspen. Class outings venture to local birding hotspots and the birds never fail to impress. Take a look at the below species list and notes from one of the recent classes and register today for upcoming birding classes!
