New School Year, New Classroom!

Posted in Kids' Corner

Over the last several years, ACES Ed has changed and grown in Basalt Elementary School (BES.) This year ACES classroom moved and excitingly, is now located within the school building (before, we were in a building nearby called, the Red Brick Building). 


Thank you for a great 2016 summer!

Wild Words in ACES Ed

Posted in Kids' Corner

“Draw a crazy picture,
Write a nutty poem,
Sing a mumble-gumble song,
Whistle through your comb.
Do a loony-goony dance
'Cross the kitchen floor,
Put something silly in the world
That ain't been there before.” 
Shel Silverstein


Water in Winter with ACES Ed

Posted in Kids' Corner

The winter is in full swing at ACES and it is definitely an exciting time to be an Educator here, both in the classroom and on field programs. ACES Ed takes us beyond the confines of the classroom, and winter provides an excellent opportunity for students throughout the Roaring Fork Valley to develop a stronger connection to a very valuable resource: WATER! 


A Sapsucker's Busy Work

When scanning a cluster of river-side serviceberry bushes through my binoculars on a recent birding excursion, a light honeycomb-shaped mosaic caught my eye. After closer inspection (and a hint from ACES' Naturalist Rebecca Weiss) we decided the grid was the result of a busy red-naped sapsucker.
