Location: Hallam Lake and the Rio Grande Trail
Every year, 2nd grade students from Aspen, Basalt, and Crystal River Elementary schools ride up the Silver Queen gondola, duck the ski boundary rope, and head out Richmond Ridge on a snowshoe challenge course. As they walk, signs appear that invite students to try and experience the winter world as one of the winter animal residents that inhabit our local subalpine landscape.
Winter in the Roaring Fork Valley is truly a special time for nature lovers of all ages. Observing wildlife thrive, even in the chilliest of weather, reminds us to appreciate all of the incredible adaptations that make winter survival possible. This month at ACES at Hallam Lake, we invite locals and visitors to learn about masters of adaptations, and some of nature’s stealthiest hunters, owls!
