Naturalist Nights is going virtual in 2021! Each winter, Wilderness Workshop partners with the Aspen Center for Environmental Studies 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. Join us live on Zoom and Facebook!
