Avalanche Creek Nature and Narratives Walk, with Alya Howe

5:30 – 8:30 p.m.
Wednesday, August, 28
Free and open to the public, registration required

Join Wilderness Workshop on a fun and creative story catching hike that travels alongside one of the beautiful tributaries of the Crystal River, the Avalanche Creek. Lush riparian areas, meadows, forests define this glorious landscape. With the guidance of Alya Howe, the founder of Under Alya’s Umbrella, a performing arts organization which curates Writ Large: live storytelling series in the RFV, We will hunter-gather words and phrases of what we see and experience building our personal “narrative in nature”, sharing with each other if you wish. Bring a pen and notebook and see how much fun we can have.

We will also learn some of the stories of the Crystal Valley and Wilderness Workshop’s work in the Maroon Bells Snowmass Wilderness Area, our current work to protect the Crystal River from dams, and our 2017 study to identify critical wildlife habitat within the Crystal River Valley.

  • This is a short, easy walk with several seated writing exercises.
  • Minors welcome and must be accompanied by a parent.
  • Bring appropriate hiking gear including water, snacks and a blanket/something to sit on.

This free hike is sponsored by Alpine Bank, The Thrift Shop of Aspen, City of Aspen, The Aspen Times, The Ute Mountaineer, Bristlecone Mountain Sports, and True Nature Healing Arts.
